A WOMAN has been jailed for 18 weeks after being caught driving whilst disqualified.

Natasha Sidorowicz, 43, of Swinton was stopped by officers on South Road in Caernarfon and arrested on on April 30.

She was subsequently charged and appeared before Caernarfon Magistrates Court on Thursday.

PC Scott Martin of the Roads Policing Unit said: “She clearly thought she was above the law and showed a complete disregard towards the court who had already disqualified her previously.

“Drivers who do not hold a licence and are uninsured pose a significant danger to other road users. We hope this sends out a clear message to people who continually flout motoring laws that they face the prospect of custodial sentences, rather than just losing their driving licence.”

Sidorowicz was also disqualified from driving for 38 months and ordered to pay a £115 victim surcharge and £85 costs.
