Council worker: Susan Latimer, 53, was given a six-month prison sentence, suspended for 12 months
The court heard that, when each of the defendants received their notices of intended prosecution, they named Burton as the driver at the time of the offence.
Mr Dunnen added: 鈥楶olice began investigating this matter as a result of a large number of occasions they received a notice of intended prosecution naming Burton and a large quantity of documentation relating to Burton between 2006 and 2012 was then reviewed.
鈥楶hotos taken by speed cameras also showed Burton was not in fact driving some vehicles at the relevant time. There was also one incident where further details emerged from mobile phone exchanges between the defendants Burton, David Tate and Kenneth Walker.鈥?Mr Dunnen said that one text message, sent by Walker to Tate, in January 2012 said: 鈥業 need the guy鈥檚 full details who is taking the points ASAP, mate. Is he covered with insurance?鈥?All the mitigating barristers said their clients were all remorseful and were lightly, if at all, convicted. The court heard they all had jobs and had not realised the severity of their actions.
Katherine Dunn, for Burton, said he was a chronic alcoholic. She said: 鈥楬e has difficulties with literacy, numeracy and communication.聽聽
