A Nowra man disqualified from driving until 2043 has pleaded guilty to again being caught by police behind the wheel.
Nowra Local Court Magistrate Gabriel Fleming described 40-year-old Gordon Mervyn Kessey's driving record as "shocking".
"You are disqualified until 2043," Magistrate Fleming said.
"You have a number of driving offences. Your driving record is appalling."
In court again on Monday, June 1, Kessey pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified.
The court heard he had just completed a lengthy intensive corrections order just seven days before the offence on March 13 this year.
Court papers said Kessey was spotted by police driving a Holden sedan on Edwards Avenue at Bomaderry around 1pm, March 13.
The vehicle was seen to perform a U-turn and accelerate harshly onto Meroo Road and turn into Penrose Drive where the vehicle came to a stop at a home.
Police said Kessey was seen getting out of the vehicle and running, jumping a number of fences in an attempt to evade arrest.
Police gave chase and Kessey eventually stopped running saying "I give up...you got me."
While searching Kessey, officers found more than $1400 cash, which he claimed was the remaining proceeds of a win on the poker machines at the Archer Hotel the previous evening.
The court was told Kessey had a lengthy driving record but had not had a driving offence since 2016 and along with his partner had been accepted into a rehabilitation program for drug and alcohol issues.
"You and your partner have been given an opportunity and you need to take it," Magistrate Fleming said.
"Being accepted into this program is a credit to you and you have every reason to go.
"Keep doing this [driving while disqualified] and you will go to jail.
"Your record is shocking."
Magistrate Fleming placed Kessey on a 10-month intensive corrections order, meaning he can serve his sentence in the community rather than in jail.
He has also been suspended from driving for 10 months and ordered to perform 60 hours of community service.
He must also enter into any full time rehabilitation program offered.
