A Kalgoorlie-Boulder man who continues to drive despite never having held a driver’s licence has been warned he could end up behind bars if he continues on the road. Ethan John Hawkes, 25, appeared in Kalgoorlie Magistrates Court on Monday where he pleaded guilty to driving under a suspended licence — which he has never held — on October 25. The court was told he had been caught for the sixth time driving despite never having a licence, with this his second offence also under a suspension. Hawkes’ lawyer Kristen Morrow said on October 25 the man had been to his father-in-law’s dialysis but was pressured to drive the car home from the appointment. Ms Morrow said she had since had a “frank discussion” with Hawkes about what would happen if he continued to drive without a licence. “(I said he is) on the road to imprisonment very soon,” she said. Magistrate Tanya Watt said Hawkes had been in court and given a suspension on October 19, with the next driving incident happening just six days later. She told the man it would be “disappointing” on “so many levels” to see Hawkes sentenced to a jail term for driving offences. “You can’t drive” she said. “If you keep going, you’ll end up in custody. “Please do not drive while you’re under your suspension.” Hawkes was fined $1000, and was disqualified for getting a licence for an extra nine months, on top on the previous suspension.
