Drunk driver's license suspended


by Linekela Halwoodi
Courts

 

A Windhoek man will pay a fine of N$6000 or will be incarcerated for 10 months as a punishment for drunken driving and had his driver’s license suspended for three months.

 Frans Imene tested at 1, 16 mg massively exceeding the 0,37 mg limit on 2 April 2011 when he was stopped by the police along Abraham Moses and Mungunda Street.

Although unemployed, Imene, managed to pay his N$4000 bail.

 Without wasting the court’s time, he admitted to have had about four beers before he hit the road.

Imene, who is a single father of two, conducted his own defence and begged the court for a lighter sentenced as he is not even employed. 

“I only do odd jobs and I am a father of two,” he said in mitigation.
