Malachy Legg, 29, of Princes Highway, pleaded guilty in the Warrnambool Magistrates Court to the charge which breached a suspended jail sentence.

He was jailed for seven days and on the breach of suspended sentence will serve 14 days. The sentences will run concurrently.

Legg was stopped at a booze bus site along the Princes Highway at Warrnambool on July 13 last year, where a driver’s licence check revealed he had an alcohol interlock condition on his licence for three years.

There was no alcohol interlock device fitted to his car.

After sentencing yesterday, Legg appealed against the severity of the penalty and was released on bail until an appeal hearing in the Warrnambool County Court.
