Wakefield Man Jailed For Providing False Details

Monday 12 October 2020

A man from Wakefield who tried to get away with speeding offences by providing false details has been jailed.

Naveed Asghar, 33 of Agbrigg Road, Wakefield was convicted of Perverting the Course of Justice on 11 September.

He was sentenced at Bradford Crown Court on 8 October to 9 months in prison.

Rachel Wainwright from the Prosecutions and Casualty Prevention Unit at West Yorkshire Police said:

‘Asghar tried to get away with speeding offences on four different occasions by providing false information to the Police. I am glad he was subsequently charged with Perverting the Course of Justice.

‘I am pleased with the sentence handed down which shows we will not tolerate people trying to evade prosecution for poor driving on our roads.

‘I hope this serves as a lesson to other people who think they can supply false details to the Police. Not only will they be committing a crime but they could face prison time.’
