Banned driver took car without consent

A disqualified driver admitted taking a car without its owner’s consent when he appeared at Lerwick Sheriff Court today.

Calum Jarmson, 34, of Hazelbank, Dunrossness, pleaded guilty to taking the car on Saturday when he appeared from custody before honorary sheriff Arnold Duncan.

He also admitted to driving uninsured, having 41 microgrammes of alcohol in his system when the legal limit is 35 microgrammes, and trying to pervert the course of justice. The offences took place between his home address and various places in Lerwick.

Sentence was deferred for three weeks while social work reports are compiled. Jarmson was released on bail until his next appearance on 2nd May.
