Oops, driver banned again

Man prohibited from driving, drives away from courthouse, leading to three days jail

Prohibited from driving means just that.

But 39-year-old Michael Wiley had to find out the hard way.

Last June, Wiley was convicted of prohibited driving in Campbell River provincial court and was banned from driving for one year.

However, just after he had signed the paperwork in the court registry, Wiley left, got into his car and drove away. He was seen by court registry staff.

On Monday, Wiley was back in court to again plead guilty to driving while prohibited. This time he was sentenced to three days jail and banned from driving for another year.
