The driver of the bandit vehicle had 25 convictions for 53 offences and added he was on licence at the time the offence was committed...
...Judge Peter Moss sentenced Adamson to 18 months in prison (will probably serve 26 weeks) for dangerous driving, four months for driving whilst disqualified (probably 8 weeks) and one month for resisting an officer. One month.
Not aware of any commendation for the officer but the offender was sent a clear message about how seriously they treat attempted murder.
The "26 weeks served" is because prisoners are automatically released after serving half the sentence, serving the remainder of it on licence in the community. Oh, wait, he was already
on licence when he committed these offences
