Hartlepool drink driver jailed for breaching suspended sentence by failing to do probation courses and 'prioritising work'
A drink driver wept in the dock of a court when his suspended sentence was activated and he was jailed.
Connor Kennedy was originally given a suspended sentence of 16 weeks for driving while disqualified and drink driving.
Part of the sentence involved taking probation courses, Teesside Magistrates’ Court heard.
The court’s liaison probation officer told the court Kennedy had not complied with the terms of the sentence, and had previously breached it.
Kennedy, 22, of Cornwall Street, Hartlepool, admitted being in breach of a suspended sentence.
Andrew Teate, defending, said: “He admits he wrongly prioritised work over doing his sentence.”
