Ravel Morrison has been convicted of fraud and fined £1000 after being caught using a dead person’s blue badge to park his car, according to reports.
The former Manchester United academy star admitted guilt at a magistrates court in the city on Thursday after being charged with one count of fraud.
Morrison’s Audi A3 was impounded earlier in the year after he was given a penalty ticket for parking his vehicle on Bridgewater Street in Deansgate.
The blue parking badge that had been used by Morrison was discovered by parking wardens to no longer be valid having belonged to a person that died in February 2022.
His Audi was given a ticket and then taken to a parking impound before being retrieved by Morrison later in the day.

The 30-year-old explained in an interview under caution that he purchased the blue badge from ‘someone in Old Trafford’ for £50, Manchester City Council said.
Blue badge passes are given to individuals suffering with disabilities or health conditions and permit them to park closer to their destination in car parks.
In addition to his fine, Morrison was also told to pay costs of £508 and a victim surcharge of £400.
Morrison previously starred for Manchester United as an academy talent
Speaking after the ruling, a Manchester City Council spokesman said: ‘This ruling shows that the law is applicable to everyone, with no exceptions.
‘I am grateful for the diligent work of our investigating officers as well as legal counsel who were able to successfully prosecute this case.
‘Our officers patrol the streets daily to ensure that blue badges are used legitimately and we will not hesitate to take action if we discover people trying to circumvent the law.’
Morrison most recently featured for MLS side DC United after being brought to the club by Wayne Rooney with the pair having previously worked together at Derby County.
