Repeat drug driver vows to change his ways after baby news
A REPEAT drug driver has decided to regain control of his life after finding a new partner and having a baby on the way.
Brett Anthony Wilson fronted Roma Magistrates Court last Tuesday and pleaded guilty to two charges of driving while drug was present in blood or saliva and one charge of driving unlicensed.
On January 1 at 6.30am, the 34-year-old was intercepted by Roma police on Bowen St for a random compliance test.
After returning a positive drug test, Wilson admitted to taking amphetamines at new-year celebrations the night before.
His driving license was suspended on March 7 due to unpaidfines from his first charge.
The court heard Wilson had not realised his partner at the time had closed their joint bank account and the payment wasn't coming out automatically.
On March 14 at 5pm, Wilson was intercepted again by police on Hawthorne St where a drug test returned a positive result for methamphetamine and marijuana.
Magistrate Roger Stark accepted Wilson's guilty, fined him $1350 and disqualified him from driving for eight months.
