Hull Drink Driver Jailed

15/12/2011

As 36 year old Dean Cox is sentenced to 15 months imprisonment for dangerous driving, driving whilst disqualified and drink driving, the District Crown Prosecutor comments on the dangers.

District Crown Prosecutor Catherine Ainsworth said:

We welcome such robust sentencing in cases of this nature. The public were clearly placed at risk by the actions of this driver.

 It was fortunate that the consequences were not far more serious both for this defendant and the public.

 We remain committed to protecting the public and we are particularly conscious of the increased risk of drink driving at this time of year. Hopefully this sentence will act as a timely deterrent to others.
