Driver with shocking record jailed
WITH a record of more than 30 convictions for driving while disqualified, a Camborne man was jailed by Truro magistrates for a similar offence.
James Isaacs, 48, of Parc an Bal Court, North Roskear, Camborne, pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified at Camborne on June 7.
Alison May, for the CPS, said Isaacs was last disqualified in 1994, the ban to last until he passed his test, which he had not done.
In the early hours of June 7 police in Camborne were forced to brake because of Isaacs pulling out in their path and then driving erratically.

Rob Eccleston, for the defence, said that night Isaacs and his wife had been with friends and his wife had drank too much to drive back, having driven them there. Isaacs decided to drive, which he regretted.
His last conviction for a similar offence was more than two years ago. The former barman was currently on benefit.
Isaacs was sent to prison for 16 weeks and a further 12 months was added to his driving ban.
