North Somercotes man sent to prison


A man from North Somercotes has been sent to prison after being found guilty of serious motoring offences in Tetney.

On Friday (March 20), Skegness Magistrates’ Court ruled that Mesut Unek, 29, of Willerton Road, was guilty of driving while disqualified in Tetney on October 27 last year, despite Unek’s not guilty plea.

Unek was already disqualified from holding or obtaining a driving licence, having been found guilty of the same offence in August 2012. He had previously been sentenced at Grimsby Magistrates’ Court in February 2013 and given a 12 week prison sentence, suspended for 24 months.

As Unek’s driving offence in Tetney occurred within the operational period of his suspended sentence, the court had little choice but to send him to prison.

Unek was also disqualified from holding or obtaining a licence for an additional two years.

A further charge, alleging that Unek had taken the car from Tetney Market Place without the owner’s consent, was dismissed.
