A MAN has been refused bail after requesting to be sent to jail “for his own safety”.
Wayne Peter Jackson pleaded guilty to two counts of high-range PCA, not giving particulars to other drivers and two counts of driving a vehicle while his licence was suspended when he fronted Tamworth Local Court on Monday.
Jackson’s barrister, Bruce Donnelly, told the court his client had issues with alcohol.
“He has a very big problem with alcohol,” Mr Donnelly said.
“He’s afraid for his own safety.”
Dressed in a black jacket and khaki pants, Jackson was seated in the court but made no application for bail.
Consequently he was refused bail and will remain behind bars until his case returns to court on November 25.
