In the NSW District Court on Friday, Judge Sarah Huggett jailed him for five years and six months with a non-parole period of three years and six months.

The 63-year-old Central Coast businessman testified to having drunk three light beers before he got behind the wheel in 2011.

His false evidence was supported by doctored CCTV footage from Shelly Beach Golf Club, whereas the full footage showed he drank seven full-strength schooners in a little over two hours.
