Car valeter gets ten months jail over 90mph joyride smash...and look at the trail of destruction he left behind

Southend Standard: Car valeter jailed over 90mph joyride smash...and look at the trail of destruction he left behind Car valeter jailed over 90mph joyride smash...and look at the trail of destruction he left behind

A JOYRIDER who ploughed through seven gardens and caused more than £51,000 of damage during a high-speed police chase has been jailed.

Kevin Austin, 27, of Seamore Avenue, Benfleet, was clocked doing speeds of 90 mph as he tore through the streets of Benfleet and Daws Heath on August 23 – in a BMW he was meant to be valeting.

Southend Standard:

He told Basildon Crown Court he had taken the car in a “moment of madness”

and the incident had been “the biggest mistake of his life”.

Southend Standard:

Judge Jonathan Black said he had no option but to jail Austin immediately and handed him a ten-month sentence.

The court heard Austin was employed as a valeter at a garage in Benfleet.

Southend Standard:

After work on August 23, he took the BMW he had been working on without the permission of the owner, without insurance and despite not having a driving licence.

At around 9pm he was clocked by an unmarked police car, driving without headlights.

Southend Standard:

They tried to pull him over but he sped off, leading them on a chase of speeds of up to 90mph, overtaking traffic on the wrong side of the road, on zebra crossings and on blind bends.

The court heard he narrowly missed a pedestrian on a zebra crossing.

He eventually lost control of the car on Daws Heath Road and ploughed 55 metres across seven front gardens, destroying vehicles and causing £51,000 of damage.

 

Southend Standard: The court heard there was extensive damage to the BMW he was driving and that every single windowwas smashed.

Because Austin was not insured the home and vehicle owners would have to pay £300 each to the insurance bureau in excesses.

In mitigation a statement was read out in which Austin said: “It was a moment of madness, the biggest mistake of my life.”

The court heard that since the incident Austin had lost his job and friends and family had disowned him.

Sentencing Austin, Judge Black said: “The aggravating factors are the vehicle was driven dangerously over a long distance and because of the time of year, there could have been people in their gardens who could have been hurt.”

“This offence is so serious that only immediate custody can be imposed.”

"He told Basildon Crown Court he had taken the car in a “moment of madness”



yeah right....if that was the case he would have pulled up as soon as the police where onto him, out in 5 months should also have a 50k fine hanging over him too as the 5 months alone sounds soft, as he had a chance to stop and didn't take it.

I can sympathise for the guy a bit. He obviously didn't mean to cause all this damage, and he could of been going through a hard time in his personal life.

....if someone has a username that describes their intended persona à la Dennis The Menace then they are trying to wind everyone up. And they're not particularly good either as they need their username to hammer their point home.

Anyway, seems a pretty lenient sentence to me, especially looking at the trail of destruction left behind.

'Could of' but he never did. He probably just did it for a laugh, his mates egging him on. He didn't intend on causing damage or wiping out the car. He probably just panicked when he saw the police. Everyone deserves a second chance, unless your a rapist or peadophile. Talking of peadophiles, peadophiles don't even get this long in jail. A few of them have been let off lately. Makes no sense to me.

In response to how long he got banned for - he never had a license to start with so I don't think a ban would make any difference if he did or did not get one.

if the 10 months was 10 years, this would stop joyriders and this crime would be a thing of the past. 20 weeks he we be out and could be out on tag in 12 weeks. deterrent no , joke sentence yes.
