A MAN who drove while disqualified and gave fake details to police has been warned to expect "all options" when he comes for his sentencing hearing.

James Roberts, of Daisy Road in Brynteg, appeared at Mold Crown Court on Friday morning.

The 38-year-old admitted two counts of driving whilst disqualified and two of committing an act, or acts, with the intent to pervert the course of public justice - namely providing a false name and date of birth to a police officer.

Philip Tully, defending, asked the court to consider standing the matter down for the preparation of a pre-sentence report.


He explained: "This case is not without complications and it would be helpful to the defence and the court to have a little more information on the details of the delay in this case.

"Mr Roberts has some relevant previous convictions but has never received any custodial sentence.

"His personal circumstances have changed from last year, therefore in my submission the court will be assisted by the preparation of a report."

Judge Rhys Rowlands told Roberts: "You pleaded guilty and that is important.

"It follows on from what appear to be unequivocal indications of guilty pleas and that entitles you, it seems, to full credit.

The Leader:

"I will adjourn sentence for a full pre-sentence report but you must be prepared for all options, including custody.

"I gave no indication of sentence today."

Roberts will be sentenced on April 25.
