A MAN broke the law to help his friend move property, a court heard today.
Darron Stephen Chrisp appeared before Darlington Magistrates’ Court charged with driving otherwise than in accordance with a licence and using a motor vehicle without insurance.
Prosecutor Jonathan Bambro said police had been called to Peabody Street, Darlington on Tuesday, February 26 to reports of people moving property into a van.
Chrisp, of Elmfield Terrace, Darlington was found at the scene and told police he had received a call from a friend asking him to help move some property. When questioned, he fully admitted driving without insurance or licence.
After pleading guilty to all charges, Chrisp was sentenced by magistrates today (Tuesday, March 12).
Jean Johnson, chair of the bench, fined him £110 and endorsed his licence with six points for driving a motor vehicle otherwise than in accordance with a licence.
He also received three points on his licence and a £37 fine for driving without third party insurance. In addition, he was ordered to pay costs of £85 and a victim surcharge of £20.
