Jail for Belfast man with 100 driving convictions

By Neil Logan

Belfast man, Anthony Fitzgerald Harmon, aged 34, has been given a 15 month prison sentence for driving while banned.

The judge described Mr Harmon's record of 163 convictions, of which nearly 100 were for driving offences, as "horrendous". In 2001 he had been banned from driving for 12 years, and more bans were added in the years that followed. On November 2012 he was spotted driving by police and was arrested. He pleaded guilty to driving while banned and without insurance.

Mr Harmon will spend 7 months of his sentence in jail, and the remaining 8 months on supervised licence.
