A man who faced court yesterday over 90 unpaid fines, including parking fines, was lucky not to receive another when he parked in the magistrate's own car park at Echuca Magistrates' Court.September 26, 2012 4:34am
A man facing charges of $27,000 worth of unpaid fines raised the ire of the magistrate when he parked in her car spot yesterday.
The 46-year-old, who said he was from Moama, was appearing in court for 90 unpaid fines, which included parking fines, failing to obey signs, stopping in a no stopping area, speeding, driving an unregistered vehicle and not wearing a seatbelt among others.
Despite the seriousness of the unpaid fine amount, which equates to 222 days in prison, the man was additionally reprimanded by magistrate Jennifer Tregent for parking illegally — in her carpark —outside the court yesterday morning.
‘‘Were you the man who was told to move his car after parking in my spot this morning?’’ Ms Tregent asked the man as he appeared before her.
He admitted he had been asked to move his car.
Ms Tregent told the man he was lucky she had not called the parking inspector to fine him again.
The man told the court some of the fines he had received were not his.
His matter was adjourned to Echuca Magistrates’ Court on November 13.
