Kevin Liston, defending, said there had been allegations that Bucek, who appeared via video link from HMP Forest Bank, had been the victim of modern slavery and pointed out that most of the offences involved "an older member of the Czech community".
"He rarely commits these offences on his own," said Mr Liston. "He is always in the company of another party and he is a vulnerable individual who is suggestible, easily influenced and finds it difficult to not get involved in criminal activity under their level of control."Deport him. And those who are encouraging him to break the law.
Sentencing Bucek, who pleaded guilty to charges of dangerous driving, driving while disqualified and failing to stop, Judge Graeme Smith said he had "no choice" but to detain the teenager.
"It seems plain that you were paid by someone else to drive the car, however, you exercised a choice to do that because you wanted the money," said Judge Smith.
Well, no flies on you, eh?
He activated each of the suspended sentences, meaning Bucek, who was also disqualified from driving for two years, will serve two years in a young offenders' institute.
Can we deport him then?
