Pricey fine not the best birthday gift

A MAN has fronted Warwick Magistrates Court on his 22nd birthday, but the only gifts he received were a fine and driving disqualification.

Darcy James Parsons pleaded guilty to one count of driving while his licence was suspended.

The Laidley man was pulled over by police on March 22 on Wallace St.

Parsons told Acting Magistrate Robert Walker he should not have been driving and Mr Walker pressed the importance of accepting responsibility for all aspects of his life.

Parsons was ordered to pay a $400 fine, which was referred to SPER, and disqualified from driving for one month.

His conviction was recorded.
