Horsham's Jaydee McCall faces court

A HORSHAM woman has been fined for driving while suspended.

Jaydee McCall, 29, appeared in Horsham Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday and pleaded guilty to the charge.

The court heard that on June 21 at 2.55pm, McCall was driving east on Baillie Street in Horsham when police intercepted her for a routine check.

Police discovered her licence was suspended until September 14 because of demerit points.

McCall told police she didn’t know the licence was suspended.

Defence lawyer Nick Graham said McCall had moved house and had notified VicRoads of her change of address, but might have done so too late.

He said she still did not know how she accumulated the demerit points that led to her licence suspension.

Magistrate Mark Stratmann said McCall had an “appalling” driving record.

“She is just under 30 years old and has more offences than I’ve seen in a long time,” he said.

“However, there have been no offences in the past seven years and I appreciate the changes she has made.”

Mr Stratmann fined McCall $850 without conviction.
