Barnsley Man Jailed For 24 Weeks

Tuesday November 19 2013

Barnsley Magistrates' Court Barnsley Magistrates' Court

A MAN drove to Barnsley police station to see an alcohol worker - but was almost three-and-a-half times over the limit when he arrived.

Lee James Narey, 41, was on bail after admitting being more than three times over the limit about a fortnight earlier.

He was carrying car keys and had parked his car nearby, Barnsley Magistrates' Court was told.

Narey, who was banned from the roads for five years, was given a telling off by District Judge John Foster.

Mr Foster said: "It's clear you have been beset by an alcohol problem for many years.

"You have ten or 12 pints a day and that must have an impact on your health and on those close to you. It's sad you have not sought help.

"But you have twice driven a car while more than three times over the limit.

"On the second occasion, you went to the police station intoxicated. That's concerned me because you had no business nor need to get in a car in that condition.

"You have to resolve your drink problem or I fear for your future."

Paul Macauley, prosecuting, said the first drink driving offence happened after Narey had had six or seven pints and a can of lager to celebrate the impending birth of his child.

He misjudged a bend and hit a woman's car.

He said about two weeks later a 'very drunk' Narey, of Wilthorpe Avenue, Wilthorpe, approached a receptionist at the police station.

He was given a 24-week jail term.

A 24 week sentence he should have got a lot more than that because two weeks before this incident he hit another woman's car so hes obviously not bothered by what he had done to the woman or gettin arrested for it but at least he's going to miss his kid/kids Christmas lets hope he learns his lesson because if sits and thinks about it's could have been that woman's kid/kids missing there mum at Christmas because it could have been a lot worse than what it was

It's obvious he does this on a regular basis

24 weeks is not enough

What a total waste of space you are. A disgrace to your family.

Your kids should be very disgraced at having a so called dad like you

Get people like this off the streets

I bet he is drinking and driving again
