Devon haulier told prison may be necessary

  • 06 January 2014
  • By Chris Tindall

A bankrupt haulier in Devon could be facing prison after he pleaded guilty to breaching a disqualification order so he could continue operating lorries.

Shaun Standen appeared at Exeter Crown Court on 5 December after attempting to run a company called Russet Red.
Standen, who had previously been involved in Standen and Sons in Tiverton, had been described by traffic commissioner Sarah Bell as having had “a long and chequered O-licensing history” after she suspected he was behind Russet Red and refused it an O-licence in 2012.

Standen was disqualified from acting as a director for a second time in 2011, until November 2026, after ignoring the original ban and trying to dupe a fuel company out of diesel totalling almost Ј28,000 while managing Westcountry Storage Distribution.

Judge Phillip Wassall said he was ordering a pre-sentence report before Standen is sentenced on 24 January, but he warned him that imprisonment may be necessary.
