Prison and three year ban for persistent drink driver

A man has been sent to prison for 12 weeks for driving a vehicle while he was three times over the alcohol limit, and despite the fact that he had been banned from driving. David Albert Allen, 45, of Castle Vale pleaded guilty to driving a Ford Focus on the Chester Road last November while he was disqualified from holding a driving licence. Tests showed that he had 246 milligrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood.
Birmingham Magistrates heard that he was involved in a serious accident, has been a persistent offender, and has failed to respond to non-custodial punishments.
He was jailed for three months, and banned from holding a driving licence for three years.
