Noosa drink drivers named and shamed
From drink-driving with kids in the car to breaking into a vehicle for $8, it’s good to know these people are off Noosa’s roads for a while.
Cassie Faye Andrew
A mum blew more than four times the legal limit after driving erratically with her baby and young child in the car.
Cassie Faye Andrew, 36, initially denied having driven to Coles Peregian on March 31.
But police didn’t buy her story when they found heat coming off the bonnet of her Ford wagon.
They had been called to the supermarket carpark by members of the public who had witnessed her driving erratically.
“Police spoke to the defendant, who was unsteady on her feet and at one stage fell over,” police prosecutor Lee Allan said.
“Members of the public were caring for her children, aged approximately three, and six months.”
She was taken to Coolum Police Station where she again refused a test and attempted to pull away from police.
Ms Andrew eventually returned a blood alcohol concentration of 0.225 per cent.
She was also fined $800 for high-range drink driving and disqualified from driving for six months.
A woman who was caught drink driving more than five times the legal limit has escaped court without a recorded conviction.
Lebrun, 42, of Noosa Heads, recorded a blood-alcohol content reading of 0.265 at Noosaville.
She was sentenced at the Noosa Magistrates Court on June 2 to six months’ probation and disqualified from driving for 18 months.
No conviction was recorded.
Barry Allen Schultz
A Maroochydore father has been disqualified for hooning past a police car while travelling 126km/h at Peregian Beach.
Barry Allen Schultz faced Noosa Magistrates Court charged with drink driving and disobeying the speed limit.
Schultz pleaded guilty to both charges.
A court heard Schultz was clocked driving 26km over the 100km speed limit when he overtook a police vehicle on Emu Mountain Road just after midnight on February 24.
He recorded a blood alcohol concentrate of 0.175 and was handed an on the spot fine of $444.
Schultz was fined a further $750 and disqualified from driving for 11 months.
Convictions were recorded.
Ximone Lilly Daniels
A P-plater was released from jail after speeding at more than 40km/h over the limit and leading police on a pursuit in a stolen car.
Ms Daniels 20, was on probation when her crimes began on January 31.
The court heard she broke into a car at Tewantin and stole $8.
Things escalated the next day when she stole a car from Tewantin and was seen speeding at 125km/h in an 80km/h zone at Yandina.
Police prosecutor Stu Lydford said Daniels failed to stop when police attempted to pull her over.
He said Daniels had continued for several kilometres with police in pursuit.
When she was eventually intercepted at Nambour, a drug test found she was driving with marijuana in her system.
She was given a head sentence of 15 months’ imprisonment, with immediate parole, for the dangerous operation of a vehicle.
Daniels was disqualified from driving for a total of two-and-a-half years.
She was also fined $300 for driving with a drug in her system.
