    12 days’ labor for

    unlicensed driver

    A Brandon man who pleaded guilty to three counts of driving without a license this week was ordered Monday to serve 12 days on the Department of Corrections work crew.

    Joshua P. Lester, 21, who has been convicted of driving with his license suspended five times since March 2010, added three more convictions to that total Monday when he pleaded guilty to new misdemeanor DLS counts brought against him in August and October.

    Lester also pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of violating court-ordered conditions of release.

    In exchange for his guilty plea, state prosecutors dropped three other DLS charges brought against Lester this year along with another charge of violating his conditions of release.

    Starting with two DLS charges brought in February, police in Brandon and Rutland brought the same charge against him twice in August and two more times in October.

    According to Rutland Police, Lester’s motor vehicle license was suspended indefinitely in 2009.
