A FORMER Kyabram man has racked up his third driving-while-suspended charge.
And has been given a 12 month community corrections order with 100 hours of community work attached.
Bryce Mold, 25, now living in Sunderland Bay, appeared in Echuca Magistrates Court to plead guilty to the latest charge.
The Sunderland Bay father was caught driving on Elm St Kyabram on May 22, 2017.
Police prosecutor Senior Constable Karl Mannes told the court police checks revealed his licence had expired 20 days earlier.
‘‘He was the sole occupant of the vehicle,’’ he said. ‘‘He was interviewed and made full admissions and when asked what his reason was he said ‘to try and get as far away from here as possible’.’’
Magistrate Patrick Southey asked Mold’s father, who was sitting in court, when he was going to learn.
‘‘This is the third drive while suspended,’’ he said.
‘‘When is it going to sink in?’’
Mr Southey said if not for his plea of guilty Mold would have received 14 days imprisonment.
‘‘You will go to jail if you keep it up,’’ he said.
‘‘This is your last chance.’’
Mr Southey convicted him and sentenced him to a 12 month CCO.
