Another unlicenced dealer prosecuted

CAR dealer and wrecker Stephen Charles Raisin has been convicted of unlicensed dealing in the Perth Court of Petty Sessions.

However, Mr Raisin was only fined $2,220 plus $250 costs because his illegal activity was carried out prior to the new penalties being introduced in 2002.

He had been a licensed dealer but when he purchased an existing wrecking business he failed to notify the Motor Vehicle Dealers Licensing Board and used his previous dealer’s license number to continue to trade and acquire vehicles.

Mr Raisin was disqualified from holding a dealer’s license by the board in August.

Earlier this month Robert James Parkinson of Beechboro was convicted of unlicensed dealing and received a court costs-inclusive penalty of $58,000.

The motor industry has been pushing for the tougher penalties for unlicensed car dealers to be used and for more prosecutions to be mounted.
