Five-year ban for drink driver who wrecked car

THE driver of this wrecked car — who crashed into an unattended vehicle and ended up in a field in Broom — has been banned from the roads for five years.

Dietrich Kessemyer (48)  was also ordered by magistrates to attend an alcohol treatment programme for six months.

Kessemyer appeared at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court for sentencing last month (June 23) after pleading guilty to drink driving on Tuesday, May 2.

He also admitted to failing to surrender to custody on June 1 after being bailed on May 19, failing to provide a specimen of blood on the day of the crash in Broom on Wednesday, May 31, two counts of racially aggravated threatening behaviour on May 31 and also assaulting a nurse, Erica Collins, when she was attempting to care for him.

Kessemyer, of Tilford Road, Woodhouse, was arrested after he collided with an unattended car before ending up in a field near to Worrygoose roundabout.

He was sentenced to 24 weeks in prison suspended for two years, fined £350 and ordered to pay £100 compensation.
