Driver gave police false name
A MAN has received a suspended prison sentence for being caught driving while disqualified three times in the past 14 months.
Ian Kenneth Voysey, 53, was pulled over for a RBT in Ipswich on September 22 where he gave police a false name because he knew he was disqualified and "panicked".
Ipswich Magistrates Court heard police charged Voysey with unlicensed driving until they discovered he was three months into a 30-month disqualification.
Defence lawyer Stuart Wills said his client usually got a lift from a neighbour to catch the train to work.
Mr Wills said Voysey had a good work ethic as a male nurse at a nursing home and was extremely remorseful about the offence.
Voysey pleaded guilty to disqualified driving and contravening a police direction.
The father of five was sentenced to three months prison, wholly suspended for three years.
He was also fined $200 and disqualified from driving for three years.
