A DUDLEY man has been given a suspended prison sentence and banned from the roads after admitting motoring offences including drink driving.

Daniel Porter, aged 34, of Stourbridge Road, has been given an eight-week prison sentence, suspended for 12 months, after pleading guilty to driving while over the legal alcohol limit on Castlegate, Dudley, on April 15.

He was also told to comply with a 12-month supervision period which includes a 90-day alcohol abstinence requirement when sentenced at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court on May 7.

Magistrates also banned him from driving for 46 months and ordered him to pay a £128 surcharge to fund victim services and £135 costs to the Crown Prosecution Service.

No further separate penalties were given for driving without insurance, without a valid MoT certificate and otherwise than in accordance with a licence on April 15, plus failing to surrender to custody at Dudley Magistrates' Court on May 3 – all of which he admitted.
