Driver was on heroin
DRIVING under the influence of heroin saw a man being put off the road at the District Court this week.
Patrick Carpenter of 39 Wellview Grove, Mulhuddart, Dublin 15, pleaded guilty to driving under the influence at Dublin Road, Bray, on June 30.
The court heard Carpenter has just completed a three month drug addiction course and is attending AA.
He is aware that he doesn’t have the best track record but has turned a new leaf and will soon become a dad.
Judge Murrough Connellan said he could see Carpenter is trying to turn his life around and so he ordered him to enter a bond to keep the peace for one year.
He also disqualified him for driving for four years.
