Bad, bad Leroy Brown

A SOUTH Grafton man was given a 12-month suspended jail sentence in Grafton Local Court last week for driving while disqualified from holding a licence.

Leroy John Brown, 36, was disqualified from driving for two years in Grafton Local Court in July 2010 and for a further two years in Maclean Local Court in August 2010.

The latest incident occurred on the Summerland Way, Junction Hill when police operating a speed camera spotted Brown drive past them with the window of his car down.

A quick registration check revealed the car's owner was unlicensed.

Brown, who was driving south, pulled into the car park of the Blue Goose Hotel and when questioned, initially denied he was driving the car, police told the court.

Police noted that a passenger in the car was fully licenced.

Brown will now be disqualified from driving till December 2017.
