Disqualified driver faces court

A MAN on parole for disqualified driving offences claimed he didn't know he would be sent back to prison if he drove again. 

Kyrin John Skipper, 25, pleaded guilty at Ipswich Magistrates Court on Monday after being picked up on February 21 as he drove to work in Ipswich.  

Skipper had been disqualified for two years in March last year and had spent some time in prison for the offence. 

In court his lawyer argued Skipper didn't realise the severity of driving while disqualified, and appealed for leniency. 

Magistrate Donna MacCallum was reluctant to believe Skipper didn't know the consequences considering he had already spent time in jail for disqualified driving. 

The case was adjourned until May 30 for the Department of Corrections to consider if they would suspend Skipper's parole.
