A woman has been sentenced to a total of two years and six months’ imprisonment for including dangerous driving and failing to stop for a police officer.

Marium Khan, aged 21, of Long Readings Lane, Slough, was sentenced on Wednesday (29/11) at Reading Crown Court.

She pleaded guilty at Berkshire Magistrates’ Court on 12 October to one count of dangerous driving, one count of driving whilst disqualified, one count of driving with no insurance, one count of failing to stop for a constable, one count of possession of counterfeit currency, one count of possession of a bladed article and one count of breaching a suspended sentence.

She was also banned from driving for four years and ordered to pay a £170 victim surcharge.

On 11 October, Khan, who was disqualified from driving at the time, was seen driving a car in Bath Road, Slough.

She failed to stop for officers, drove dangerously and then crashed into another vehicle occupied by a 64-year-old man and a 63-year-old woman.

The man and the woman sustained injuries as a result of the incident.

Khan was charged with the offences on 12 October.

Investigating officer, PC Nick Macchia, based at Slough police station, said: “Khan’s reckless actions caused two innocent members of the public to sustain injuries when she failed to stop for police officers.

“I hope that this case serves as a warning that serious driving offences such as Khan’s can result in imprisonment, and that police and the courts take a very dim view of driving whilst disqualified.”
