Disqualified driver banned for two years

AN IPSWICH man has turned a one month driving suspension into two years, after he was caught behind the wheel with a disqualified licence.

Steven James Freeck had been ordered off the roads for a month after he was convicted of driving with a SPER suspended licence in August.

Three weeks later, police intercepted the 29-year-old while driving in Riverview.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Matt Donnelly told Ipswich Magistrates Court the incident occurred on September 8.

Freeck pleaded guilty and was fined $700 and disqualified from driving until October 2016.
