A man convicted of drink driving for the fifth time was sentenced to nine months jail in Orange Local Court this morning.
Glenn Johnson was drinking heavily and riding motor bikes on a Springside property in September last year, when he rode out onto a public road, crashed the bike and sustained a serious head injury as he was not wearing a helmet.
It was nearly a year ago that Johnson had his licence suspended for his fourth drink driving offence.
This morning magistrate Bruce Williams told the accused he had a deplorable record which included numerous speeding offences and said he was a danger to others on the road.
Johnson was sentenced to two months jail, on a second charge of driving while disqualified.
Magistrate Williams set a non-parole period of four months.
After Johnson was taken into custody, his solicitor Mason Manwaring lodged an appeal to the District Court against the severity of the sentence.
