A 17-YEAR-OLD disqualified driver who sped away from police, leading to a chase through a busy town, has been suspended and banned from driving for three years.
Jerry Harty was sentenced at Swansea Crown Court on Friday when he was also ordered to take a diversionary scheme to engage with rehabilitation activity for 20 days to get him to change his ways.
Harty’s driving was so dangerous – with excessive speed, driving on the wrong side of the road, and travelling the wrong way around a roundabout – that police had to call off their pursuit.
