A prosecutor said a member of the public spotted the former Manchester United and England soccer star holding a phone while driving through central London on Nov. 21.
Beckham's lawyer, Gerrard Tyrrell, said his client had "no recollection" of the incident but pleaded guilty.
Beckham already had six penalty points on his drivers' license for speeding offenses. The six more District Judge Catherine Moore gave him Thursday for the cellphone put him at the 12 points needed to lose driving privileges.
Beckham attended the hearing at Bromley Magistrates Court wearing a dark grey suit and tie. He spoke to give his name, date of birth and address.
A Solicitor called Mr Loophole (nickname) got this arse off a speeding fine some months ago, just because one overpaid twat can afford to pay another overpaid twat thousands of pounds to do so, even though Beckham was guilty Mr Loophole had no conscience when getting off breaking the law and taking his money

And the picture shows that it is likely he has broken the law by parking on double yellow lines.
I am so glad I had all girls and never got interested in football. Professional footballers really believe they are above the law because twerps that work hard waste their salaries going to and paying to watch football on TV.
That's without the lazy useless tossers claiming unemployment benefits and using our taxes to do the same.

I am however mad at people that break the law and wriggle out of it for whatever reason. I am also mad at Solicitors that know a person has broken the law and defend them with the sole aim of getting them off
