Lengthy driving ban

A 66-YEAR-OLD man has been handed a suspended prison sentence after admitting a drink-drive offence.

Michael Cook, 66, of Penstraze Bungalow, Victoria, Roche, appeared before Bodmin magistrates on Wednesday last week.

He pleaded guilty to driving a Skoda Fabia at the Co-op car park in Roche on August 2 with 129 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath, the limit being 35mcg. He had previously denied the charge.

Cook was sentenced to a ten-week jail term, suspended for 12 months and banned from driving for 40 months, as well as being ordered to pay £80 costs and an £80 victim surcharge. He was not offered the chance to do an approved course to reduce his ban as he has been offered it before.
