ERR. he was already banned from driving because he didn't have a licence. This punishment is no different to a drink driver that has a licence, insurance, and road tax, so what is the deterrent to driving illegally here. The law is an @ss. He should have got 6 months inside.

How did Mongkhon get away so lightly? Did Boots not press charges? £400 worth of stuff nicked and no punishment?! Or did it reduce to detained for the day after an unfortunate 'fall down the stairs'? Just speculation -it seems a lot of theft to get away with...

It's about time something was done about drink drivers, it seems to be common practice to get back behind the wheel sozzled while their licence is suspended -and then if they kill anyone -well, they were 'under the influence' so that apparently makes it okay -maybe licence suspended for another year - doesn't stop them doing it though does it? Short of them running down a police officer while drunk, justice, and removing a serious risk, is just ignored.
