Wife in court after hubby forgets to pay her fine

WHEN Susan Patricia Wyles was busted by police driving without a licence, her husband also copped the punishment.

Wyles was driving on Dawson Hwy at Burua on December 18 when she was stopped by police.

When they entered her name into the database, police discovered Wyles's licence had been suspended for a month due to a prior fine not having been finalised.

Wyles told police she had asked her husband to take care of the bill, which he had evidently not.

Defence solicitor Brad Krebbs told the court the defendant's husband had subsequently found himself in the doghouse for neglecting to pay the bill.

Nevertheless, he was present in Gladstone Magistrates Court supporting his wife as her case was heard.

Wyles was ordered to pay a $300 fine and she has been disqualified from holding a driver's licence for a period of one month.

The defendant was cautioned by Magistrate Penelope Hay to either ensure her husband would take care of the fresh fine, or to pay it herself.
