COURT: Court Case

A Nottingham man has been sent to jail for 18 weeks after he was caught in charge of a vehicle whilst unfit to drive through drink, in Bulwell three days after he was disqualified.

Ivan Philip McCluskey, 60, of Sherwood Rise, Nottingham, was found guilty of being in charge of the car in Holborn Place carpark on June 18 this year after pleading not guilty to the offence.

McCluskey admitted driving the blue Chevrolet Lacetti on Main Street, Bulwell, while disqualified and also driving without insurance.

He was committed to prison for 18 weeks because the offence was so serious, it was his third drink driving offence, and he drove while disqualified within three days of being disqualified.

Nottinghamshire magistrates ordered him to pay a victim surcharge of £80, and a criminal courts charge of £520.

He was disqualified from driving for four years.

He also admitted failing to surrender to the court on September 30.

On October 21 at Nottinghamshire Magistrates Court, he was sentenced to two weeks in prison, which will run concurrent to the main sentence.

A Nuthall man who assaulted a man and a woman in Bulwell by beating them has been spared jail.

He admitted assaulting a woman on the same day and was found guilty of damaging a mobile phone.

He was discharged conditionally for two years by Nottinghamshire magistrates on October 20 and ordered to pay total compensation of £100, a victim surcharge of £15, as well as costs of £350 and a criminal courts charge of £520.

A warrant has been sworn out for the arrest of a Bulwell man after he failed to attend court on five separate occasions between August 28 and October 20 this year.
