A motorist, who pleaded guilty to having no licence or insurance, has been been disqualified for a year.

The case of Oskar Kazimierczak, (24), of Tandragee Road, Portadown, was heard at Craigavon Courthouse sitting on Wednesday, May 4.

The court heard that on December 3 last year, police were conducting a vehicle checkpoint on the Dungannon Road, Portadown.

Police stopped a green coloured vehicle and spoke to the driver who was known to be the defendant.

A check was carried out on police systems which showed Kazimierczak was not insured to drive the vehicle and he confirmed to officers he was going to be a policy in place after just buying the car.

In his defence, the court was told that the defendant had recently bought the vehicle and hadn’t got insurance or his licence sorted. It was added that he cares for his father but has gone the wrong way about it, with further similar offences coming before the court.

District Judge Bernie Kelly imposed a £500 fine and a 12 month disqualification for no insurance. A forfeiture order was also granted for the vehicle in question.

Kazimierczak was also fined £200 for having no driving licence.
