Unlicensed driver told to grow up

A MORTLAKE man caught driving without a licence for the 10th time will be sentenced in court next week. 

Bradley Leetham, 24, of Shaw Street, pleaded guilty in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court to fraudulently using number plates, using an unregistered vehicle, speeding and unlicensed driving.

Magistrate Jonathan Klestadt said it was time for Leetham to “grow up and stop giving money to the government”.

He said Leetham just kept making the same mistakes and that locking him up wouldn’t do anyone any good, but he needed to get a learner driver’s permit and start acting like an adult.

Leetham was charged after police clocked his Mitsubishi travelling at 63km/h in a 40km/h school zone in Mortlake at 2.50pm on August 5.

His case was adjourned for sentencing until December 10.
