A Llangeitho man has been banned from the road for repeat offending after being caught driving while using a mobile phone in Aberystwyth.

Jordan William Michael Shepherd, of Pantybeudy Hall, appeared for sentencing at Aberystwyth Magistrates’ Court on 1 February.

The 24-year-old had pleaded not guilty to driving while using a mobile phone on Primrose Hill on 20 April last year but was found guilty in his absence at a hearing on 11 January.

Shepherd was disqualified from driving for six months “due to repeat offending.”

He was also fined £60.

Shepherd must also pay costs of £300 and a £16 surcharge.
