VIRGINIA BEACH — A man was caught allegedly driving without a license on Naval Air Station Oceana on July 20, which was the 16th time he’s been charged with that offense, according to federal court documents.

Thirteen of those charges occurred in Virginia Beach.

The case is being handled in federal court because Oceana is military property.

Parker has received various sentences under his numerous driving without a license convictions, including a revoked driver’s license, a $500 fine, and 185 days in jail after he was convicted for the same offense the 10th time in February 2016.

Parker’s next hearing date is scheduled to be in the federal courthouse in Norfolk on Sept. 17 — his 24th birthday.
