Bethan Jenkins AM: 'deeply sorry'

The District Judge Bodfan Jenkins acknowledged the defendant's genuine remorse as well as her early guilty plea.

The reality is that the reading was a very high one - something which cannot be ignored.

While there is no other suggestions of bad driving, you embarked on a lengthy journey.

The risks involved are phenomenal.

The guidelines mean you fall into the second (sentencing) band.

– Bodfan Jenkins, District Judge

Jenkins was fined £750, as well as ordered to pay a £75 victim surcharge and £85 in costs.

If she successfully completes a driver rehabilitation course, her 20-month disqualification will be reduced by five months.

Following the outcome of today's hearing, Jenkins said she was deeply sorry.
