A SICK dog led to a 36 year old Alness man being prosecuted for his sixth driving while disqualified offence at Inverness Sheriff Court.
But Christopher Murray of Westford, won't be sentenced until May 21 as he is currently on a community payback order and a background report is required.
However Sheriff Eilidh Macdonald released Murray, who had been on remand since March 19, on bail.
He admitted driving while banned in Alness on March 18.
Defence solicitor John MacColl said: "He had an unwell dog and it couldn't get in the car. So he went to the vet to ask for a home visit.
"It was on that journey that he was stopped. The dog subsequently died after being sedated and taken to the vet surgery."
