    poacher

    Hi Guys, My local paper "The Galloway News" Has in today’s edition a court report on a man from Newcastle named Brian Weddell of Ninth Row, aged 51 who has plead guilty of recklessly firing a rifle near Dalry, he plead guilty by letter after he appeared on 12 June this year.
    He discharged the rifle near Corriedoo from the A702 road from Dalry to Edinburgh, shooting and killing a roe deer, when there was a man stalking nearby he also admitted shooting the deer without permission and failing to comply with the terms of his firearms licence.
    He also admitted driving without "L" plates and without supervision or insurance.
    Sentencing was deferred to October 28 for Wendell to make a personal appearance.

    I was wondering if this is the case that was debated in June?

    Dry Powder.

    Barry,

    sounds like a match mate,
    be interested to see the outcome of that case.
    he plead guilty by letter which could indicate a deal has been done so a lenient sentence may be given...

    keep us informed mate

    thanks f.

    As in do not pass go, do not collect £200.00, but you might have one of those get out of jail cards!

    The scrote obviously doesnt take heed for the law so there should be no question about whether or not he keeps his FAC.. he souldnt even be allowed a driving licence!

    Agreed and i by no means support him keeping it, but the law can be funny sometimes.
    Not in a humorous way either but he has plead guilty by letter which means as a rule of thumb a deal has been struck.
    That said deal could be plead guilty and keep your firearms...... take a large fine.

    Honest wait and see and i do hope i am wrong but he could be back shooting within the month.

    His fine for the driving convictions will probably be a lot less than his insurance would have cost him anyway!
    How can you give someone without a licence a driving ban that will bother them?
    He wasn't bothered to have a licence in the first instance, so why would a ban bother him!
    There is simply no deterant to crime any more!
    I wonder how someone like that got a FAC in the first place? Blatant disregard for several laws should surely mean the removal of his FAC?
    He should be given a custodial sentence, FAC (+SGC if applicable) removed, and banned from ever driving!
    Scrote of the highest order!!

    A random question I know, but this individual was not driving a black coloured Ford Escort was he? I'm aware of a poacher (driving such a vehicle) around the Girvan area quite recently.

    MS, from a legal point of view, driving while unlicensed is a much lesser offence than driving while banned. The former gets a small fine, the later gets suspended sentence at least, if not a custodial.

    Driving while uninsured is a greater offence than driving without a license.

    On the subject of the FAC, there should be no way he gets to keep it. Here in NI, the driving offences above would cost you the FAC, never mind the poaching/discharging a firearm from the highway.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
