A Sudbury man has narrowly avoided a jail term after committing a string of offences, including aggravated vehicle taking.
Ashley Williams, 35, of Humphry Road, pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol when he appeared at Bury St Edmunds Magistrates’ Court last Tuesday.
The court heard that Williams gave a breath test of 84 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 microgrammes.
He also admitted charges of driving while disqualified, driving without insurance and aggravated vehicle taking. The offences all took place in Glemsford on January 5.
Williams was sentenced to four months in prison, suspended for 18 months, banned from driving for 42 months, handed an 18-month community supervision order and told to pay £85 in costs.
