A MAN from Conwy has been banned from driving and received a suspended sentence following his failure to co-operate with a breath test.

Tomos Roberts, 34, of Woodland Park, Colwyn Bay, was accused of not providing a specimen of breath at St Asaph Custody on April 2, as part of an investigation into whether he had driven while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

He pleaded guilty at Llandudno Magistrates’ Court on April 22.

Mr Roberts received an eight-week prison sentence, suspended for 18 months, and was disqualified from driving for three years.

This disqualification period will be reduced by 36 weeks should he complete an obligatory course by June 12, 2024.

He is also to abstain from consuming alcohol for 90 days, which will be monitored via equipment fitted on him, and is to undertake a rehabilitation activity for 15 days.

Mr Roberts’ prison sentence was considered worthy due to this being the second occasion in which he failed to provide a specimen of breath.

Though, the sentence was suspended due to the prospect of his rehabilitation.
