Drink-Driver Jailed Again for Being Four Times Over the Limit

Paul Coe, 34, has been banned from driving once again after being caught nearly four times over the legal alcohol limit. Coe, previously convicted of killing schoolgirl Lisa Jermy in a drunken driving incident, was found to have 130mg of alcohol per 100ml of breath, compared to the legal limit of 35mg.

In 2007, Coe was sentenced to five years in prison after his drunken driving resulted in the tragic death of 16-year-old Lisa Jermy. Despite his previous conviction and a ten-year driving ban, Coe once again faced the court for drink-driving.

During the trial, Coe’s father, Melvin, who had his own history of fatal collisions, was also mentioned. Melvin had been involved in two fatal crashes, one while over the drink-drive limit. Coe’s latest offence occurred in April of the previous year, and he initially denied the charges. However, he later changed his plea to guilty.

Lisa’s father, Peter Jermy, expressed his frustration at Coe’s repeated offences, calling for stricter penalties for repeat offenders involved in serious incidents. He emphasized the devastating impact that Coe’s actions had on his family, noting the loss of his wife due to the trauma and stress caused by the incident.

Coe attributed his latest offence to an argument with his partner, claiming that he was not in his normal state of mind. Despite his explanation, the court handed him a two-year driving ban and ordered him to pay fines and costs amounting to £483.

The case serves as a reminder of the ongoing consequences of irresponsible driving behaviour and the need for stricter measures to prevent repeat offences.
