A MAN who pleaded guilty in court to four offences has been banned from driving for 14 months and will have to carry out 100 hours unpaid work.
Zubher Abbas, 31, of South Uxbridge Street, appeared at Burton Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday for the offences which took place at 11pm on September 28. Abbas was found to have 88 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 milliletres of breath. The legal limit is 35.
He was also charged with driving without insurance, driving while banned, and failing to stop the car - a VW Touran - when asked by a police officer.
Abbas was handed a 12 month suspended sentence by magistrates, with a supervision requirement.
He will undergo a drink impaired driving course and will also pay a £80 victim surcharge and £85 in court costs.
The court heard that Abbas had lost his job as a result of his conviction.
