Dangerous driver failed to comply with sentence, Carlisle court told

A dangerous driver has been fined after failing to comply with the conditions of his sentence.

Adam Altham, 22, of Romany Way in Appleby, was given a suspended prison sentence in December after he led police on a high-speed chase.

This was in a car he had taken – while serving a driving ban – in the early hours of an October morning after he had been drinking.

As punishment Altham was given a total of four months in jail, suspended for 24 months, and was disqualified from driving for three years.

He was also given a community order, with 12 months’ supervision and 200 hours of unpaid work, a three-month curfew order, between 8pm and 6am, and an £80 fine.

He appeared at Carlisle Crown Court after he failed to comply with the conditions of his sentence twice.

He had not turned up to carry out unpaid work on June 1 and had not kept a supervision appointment on July 14.

The court heard that he made no excuse for not carrying out the work, and had been in Preston through his job as a steel erector on the day of the appointment.

Judge Barbara Forrester ordered Altham to pay a fine of £100 and £150 costs for the breach.
