Judge Sanders said: "Throughout these proceedings you have shown yourself to be arrogant, thinking you are someone whose previous and current role in the public eye entitles you to be above the law.
"In fact the opposite is true - someone in the public eye should expect a deterrent sentence when they flout the law."
Note: "someone in the public eye should expect a deterrent sentence when they flout the law."

Ex-Liverpool striker Dean Saunders has left prison, a day after he was jailed for 10 weeks for refusing to provide a roadside breath test.
!!!! What kind of example or detergent was that. Seriously, the judge handed out 10 weeks, the least he could have served is the 10 weeks, it's not that long. I'm fuming. What kind of message does this send out? I hope people look at this as a prime example of a way to mitigate their own transgressions, maybe then the system may ensure the full sentence is served.
If you read the story, this guy was in a right old state, he could have ploughed into a bus queue and we may have been reading about multiple examples of manslaughter.
