Disqualified driver's sentence reduced following severity appeal

A man who was given 12 months of intensive corrections orders and a two-year driving disqualification for driving while disqualified had his sentence altered in Orange District Court.

Stephen Lindsay Reid, 30, of James Sheahan Drive, appealed the severity of the original sentence.

On Thursday, Judge Christopher Robison gave Reid a six-month suspended jail sentence dating from November 30, 2017 to May 29, 2018, and the disqualification period was reduced to six months from November 30.
