East Yorkshire’s ‘worst driver’ goes on foul-mouthed rant as judge locks him up

One of East Yorkshire’s worst drivers revved up a foul-mouthed rant when a judge put the brakes on his bail application.

Jason Ginnever, 40, already had an astonishing 120 offences on his record when he admitted dangerous driving, driving while disqualified, and using a vehicle without insurance; crimes all committed on March 5 in the Marfleet Lane and Preston Road areas of east Hull.

Ginnever’s pleas made it his 22 conviction for driving while disqualified, and his fifth for driving dangerously.

He disputes the prosecution’s account of the circumstances of his offending, with a judge set to establish the facts in a further hearing at Hull Crown Court on July 23.

Jayne Bryan, for Ginnever, said he was “extremely anxious to be dealt with” when he appeared at the court hoping to be sentenced.



Making a bail application on his behalf, Miss Bryan conceded he had a “bad record”, but said he had “turned his life around” since 2013, when he settled down and started a family.

Ginnever, of Millennium Way, Goole , had found it “extremely difficult” being separated from his two young children while being held in custody on remand, Miss Bryan said.

Both Ginnever and his partner had written letters to the court reinforcing the point, she said.

But opposing the bail application, prosecutor Phillip Evans said: “This is the twenty-second occasion this defendant has driven while disqualified, and the fifth occasion he has driven dangerously, whether part of aggravated vehicle taking or as a charge in its own right.

“The defendant simply can’t stop getting in motor cars and driving them badly, and for that reason the Crown say his bail is inappropriate.”

When Recorder Felicity Davies said she was refusing bail, Ginnever shook his head and stormed out of the dock of Court Four through the door leading to the cells, with two custody officers following in his wake.

He then appeared to have a change of heart, re-emerging moments later, although his mood had not lightened.

“I don’t think you understand the situation I’m in!” he shouted, as the judge was giving her reasons for refusing the application.

“You are someone with an appalling record for driving offences,” Recorder Davies told him.

“Well, it’s f****** ridiculous!” said Ginnever, before softening his tone to say “I love you, babe”, to his partner, and “sorry”, as he again left court.

Those who were in court could not be sure whether the loud banging and wailing coming from the cells for the next five minutes was Ginnever or not, but it had preceded his entry into court and stopped while he was in the dock.
