Moorbel man fined $200

A 28-year-old Moorbel man has been fined $200 and disqualified from driving for three months at Cowra Local Court.

Adam Scott Slattery, who represented himself, was before the court in Cowra on Wednesday, March 7 charged with driving a motor vehicle while his licence was suspended.

According to police facts around 12.10pm on February 11, police were conducting mobile patrols of Canowindra when they stopped Slattery for the purposes of a random breath test.

When asked for his licence Slattery told police he didn’t have one, “It’s suspended due to fine default.”

Slattery told the court he was driving because he had an argument with his grandmother.

He added that he had forgotten that his licence was suspended.

“I haven’t driven since and I don’t plan to (drive again) until I get my licence back,” Slattery told magistrate Michael O’Brien.
