The former ‘Ballan Sausage King’ Salvatore Fusca made a plea of guilty to driving whilst suspended in the Bacchus Marsh Magistrates court on Friday 12 July.
Prosecutor Leading Senior Constable Simon Pearce told the court Fusca’s licence had already been suspended on 14 August 2018 for a period of 12-months.
The court heard this year on February 26, Fusca was travelling along Ingliston road Ballan when intercepted by police.
“What are you doing flouting an order of this court?” Magistrate Ross Betts asked Fusca.
“It was just stupidity sir,” Fusca replied.
“If you keep driving whilst suspended, you’ll end up with a jail sentence,” Magistrate Betts said.
Fusca was convicted and fined a sum of $2000.
