Di­a­betic faces charges of as­sault­ing fam­ily mem­bers


Bray People - - Bray People -

A 64-YEAR-OLD man who’s ‘ big­gest fear’ is go­ing to jail, pleaded guilty to three charges of as­sault and a charge of threat­en­ing and abu­sive be­hav­iour at last Thurs­day’s district court.

Ge­orge White of Der­ry­nane, Ravenswell Road, faced charges of as­sault at St. Colm­cille’s Hospi­tal in Lough­lin­stown on Oc­to­ber 10 last year.

The court heard White was at the hospi­tal vis­it­ing his late mother who was very ill at the time when mem­bers of his fam­ily who he doesn’t get on with ar­rived at the hospi­tal.

Words were ex­changed and White be­came ag­i­tated and as­saulted three of his fam­ily mem­bers. Gar­daí were called to the hospi­tal and White was ver­bally abu­sive and ag­gres­sive to­wards the Gar­daí. The De­fence So­lic­i­tor told the court White suf­fers from Di­a­betes and on the day had not taken his in­sulin.

White was taken to the garda sta­tion but as his health de­te­ri­o­rated he was taken to Lough­lin­stown Hospi­tal. One of White’s two pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions that date back to the 1960’s, was as­sault of a Garda.

Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan ad­journed the mat­ter to April 20 to see if White comes to the at­ten­tion of Gar­daí.
