I had to read ths twice before I believed how quickly this matter was dealt with in Queanbeyan. I bet the driver regrets crossing the border:
In Queanbeyan Local Court on Monday Sepehrnia was charged with five offences including driving with an expired licence, police pursuit – not stop – drive recklessly and displaying unauthorised number plates.
Magistrate Chris Bone heard Sepehrnia was in Canberra visiting a friend.
He panicked when police tried to stop him because he didn’t have a driver’s licence.
Magistrate Bone said Sepehrnia had a bad driving record which included several offences of driving without a valid licence.
He was sentenced to four months in prison.
