Shipston man jailed for series of driving offences

Stratford Editorial 4th Mar, 2020 Updated: 5th Mar, 2020   0

A DRIVER from Shipston with a ‘flagrant disregard for court orders’ has been jailed.

Dean Beauchamp, of Donnington Grove, was sentenced to 12 weeks after admitting a series of driving offences.

The 39-year-old pleaded guilty to two counts of driving while disqualified and two counts of driving without insurance.

He admitted committing both offences on two separate occasions in Shipston last May.

Officers seized a Volkswagen camper van and, following the second offence, a Ford Transit Connect Van.

Beauchamp had been disqualified from driving after police caught him behind the wheel while already disqualified following a previous conviction.

The court was told Beauchamp had a ‘flagrant disregard for court orders’.

PC Craig Purcell said: “Beauchamp has persistently broken the law by driving whilst disqualified and now he must face the consequences of his actions.

“Court orders are there to protect the public from people like Beauchamp. This conviction should send a strong message that police will enforce court orders and seek to bring to justice people who breach them.”
