A MAN who was found guilty of trying to take a driving theory test on behalf of a friend has been spared jail.
Security guard Varmuyan Sirleaf (45), of Eden Street, Oldham, pleaded not guilty to two counts of fraud by false representation when he appeared before Oldham magistrates on Tuesday.
Sentencing him yesterday, magistrate Brenda Gates said: “It is a very serious offence that you have committed.
Sirleaf pleaded not guilty to the two charges but later admitted full responsibility.
Sirleaf was given a 26-week prison sentence on each offence to run concurrently and suspended for two years, with a requirement to carry out 280 hours of unpaid work. He must also pay costs of £580.
