Magistrates have retired to consider their sentencing options in the case of Carlos Tevez.
The footballer has admitted driving while disqualified.
Tevez was originally banned for failing to respond to police letters over speeding tickets.
He insisted he hadn't understood them.
The striker's lawyer insists a lengthy period of disqualification has "already been served" and that he should face a "community penalty."
