A serial driving pest has been spared jail after pleading guilty to disqualified driving.
77-year-old Australian, Nathan Barker was due to appear in court for the hearing of driving a motor vehicle while disqualified, his 29th such charge.
But Barker instead pleaded guilty to the charge after newspaper reporters took photographs of him driving his pick-up truck in Waterloo, South Coogee, Australia, despite previously being banned from driving for 76 years.
Police reveal that after the man was charged for the offence, Barker said “Who? Me? It wasn’t me…it was Paula, [a] friend of mine.”
Magistrate Jennifer Atkinson handed the pensioner a three-month suspended jail sentence, as well as handing him a good behaviour bond for the three month period.
A further two years were added to Barkers driving disqualification record following his sentence, meaning he will not be allowed to drive until 2094, when he will be 183-years-old.
