A BRIERLEY Hill man has been jailed for 16 weeks and banned from the roads for a year for driving while disqualified.

Jamie Edmunds, of Bisell Way, pleaded guilty to driving a Vauxhall Corsa while disqualified and without insurance on Oakham Road, Dudley, on July 31.

The 28-year-old was given a 16-week prison sentence due to an “appalling record of driving whilst disqualified” – court documents said.

He was also disqualified from driving for 12 months and his driving record endorsed.

Magistrates also fined him £250 and ordered him to pay costs of £135 to the Crown Prosecution Service and a £154 surcharge to fund victim services when sentencing him at Wolverhampton Magistrates’ Court on Monday August 1.
