Halstead: Dad criticises mechanic son's 10-month jail sentence
2:00pm Friday 18th January 2013 in News
The father of a mechanic jailed for ten months after leading police on a high-speed car chase has hit out at his sentence.
Ben Turner, 23, of Acorn Avenue, Halstead, was found by police hiding in a bush after reaching speeds of 105mph during a 20-minute chase.
He had panicked because he thought he was over the drink-drive limit, but a breathalyser test showed he was well below the limit.
