For­mer heroin ad­dict broke into his ex-girl­friend’s home


Bray People - - News -

‘IT’S JUST ME. It’s Terry,’ a 22year-old man told his ter­ri­fied ex­girl­friend through a locked bath­room door af­ter he broke into her home.

Terry Carr of 3 Bal­ly­waltrim Cot­tages, Bray, pleaded guilty to tress­pass at 17 Monastery Grove in En­niskerry on Novem­ber 14 last year.

The court heard Carr climbed through a win­dow into the house of his for­mer girl­friend when a mem­ber of her fam­ily saw him and then ran with his ex-girl­friend into the bath­room and locked the door.

When they called out and asked who it was he said; ‘It’s just me. It’s Terry.’

They called the gar­daí and told him to leave which he did.

The gar­daí stopped Carr later and he ad­mit­ted to the en­ter­ing the house.

The De­fence So­lic­i­tor, Mr. Joe Maguire, told the court Carr had just bro­ken up with the girl af­ter five years and he didn’t re­ally be­lieve that it was over.

Carr has also suf­fered a drug in­duced psy­chosis which he hasn’t fully re­cov­ered from but has re­ceived treat­ment for and he has spent much of the past year in hospi­tal.

‘I was a heroin ad­dict for four years your hon­our,’ Carr told Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan.

The Judge ad­journed the mat­ter to Novem­ber 16 to see if he comes to the at­ten­tion of gar­daí again.

He also re­quested for a med­i­cal re­port to be pro­duced on that date.
