Tampa man gets prison term for repeated driving violations

This is Jeffrey West

KEY WEST, July 17, 2019 – A Tampa man who repeatedly drives without a valid license has been sentenced to state prison for his latest offense.

 On July 11, Jeffrey West, 53, was given 32 months by Monroe County Circuit Court Judge Mark Jones after West pleaded no contest to felony driving with a suspended or revoked license. Assistant State Attorney Christine Poist represented the state.

 The evening of November 21, 2018, West was driving a Toyota south at mile marker 5 of U.S. 1 and passed a Monroe County Sheriff’s Office deputy who was monitoring traffic. Radar showed West was driving 62 mph in a 45 mph zone, so the deputy pulled him over. He told the deputy he didn’t have a valid driver’s license.

 A check of his driving record showed West’s Florida license was previously suspended twice in Hillsborough County. In addition, he has a record of driving under the influence and other driving violations in Georgia.
