A 34-year-old man who was recently banned from the roads for three years was given a concurrent 18 month disqualification last Friday at Craigavon Magistrates Court.
Steven Ronald Bordessa, Derryhale Lane, Portadown, was also fined £100 for driving with excess alcohol in breath on August 3 this year. For not having insurance he was fined £100.
A solicitor representing the defendant said Bordessa had a number of relevant similar offences.
He added that at Banbridge court on October 20 he had been disqualified from driving for three years. Bordessa had been caught up in a cycle of consuming alcohol due to the breakdown of his marriage, the solicitor said.
