Woorabinda man jailed for four months
A WOORABINDA man intercepted by police while on his way to Baralaba to get alcohol has been jailed for four months.
Ian Kenneth Malcolm, 25, of Hill Street, pleaded guilty in Rockhampton Magistrates Court yesterday to two counts of driving without a licence and one count of drink-driving.
The court heard Malcolm had a shocking traffic history including nine disqualified-driving offences and had been in jail for previous traffic offences. Prosecutor Senior Constable Kay Schick said Woorabinda police intercepted Malcolm on the Baralaba-Woorabinda road in December 2004.
Malcolm was breath-tested and recorded a reading of .118%. Senior Constable Schick said Malcolm told police he was driving to Baralaba to get more alcohol.
Malcolm was intercepted a second time on August 4 on Woorabinda Access Road. He told police he did not have a licence and had been disqualified until January 11, 2010.
Malcolm was jailed for four months with a 13-month probation and disqualified from driving for five years.
