A man who had no insurance, no licence, and no seats in the back of his car has been given a suspended prison sentence after being stopped by police in Roslea.
Nathan Cawley (23) of Mullaghmatt, Monaghan appeared at Enniskillen Magistrates Court on Monday having been arrested over the weekend in Roslea.
At around 10.45pm on November 25th police were carrying out a checkpoint on Roslea Main Street when they stopped the car Cawley was driving. He admitted having no licence or insurance, and the front seat passenger said the car belonged to him. When police looked inside the car they saw there were two men sitting on the floor in the back, as there were no back seats.
On Monday Cawley pleaded guilty to having no insurance, having no licence, and using a vehicle in a dangerous condition.
District Judge Micheal Ranaghan said the most serious of the charges was driving without insurance. For that offence he sentenced him to one month in prison, suspended for one year. For driving without a licence he gave Cawley three penalty points, that will be endorsed on his licence if he ever applies for one in the North. For using a car in an unfit condition he gave Cawely a conditional discharge of one year.
