Potters Bar couple admit perverting course of justice
A HUSBAND and wife from Potters Bar have been fined �500 and banned from driving after giving a false name to avoid a speeding fine.
Marc and Carrie Morrow, from Powis Court, both pleaded guilty to perverting the course of justice at St Albans Crown Court yesterday (Tuesday), after they falsely nominated a driver for a speed camera activation penalty.
But the couple had nominated a person living in America, and following an investigation by Hertfordshire Constabulary, which included help from the FBI, they were eventually found out.
The couple were fined �250 each and both disqualified from driving for six weeks.
Pc Bill Owen, who works in the Safety Camera Unit, said: “This result shows how far we will pursue those who attempt to avoid justice.
