Bray People - - News -

A PRIS­ONER who had a mo­bile phone in Shel­ton Abbey was given a six-month sus­pended sen­tence when he ap­peared be­fore Judge Mur­rough Con­nel­lan at last Wed­nes­day’s sit­ting of Ark­low District Court.

Peter Maguire, 86 Donomore Av­enue, Tal­laght, Dublin 24 was charged with com­mit­ting the of­fence at Shel­ton Abbey Prison, Beech Road, Ark­low on May 17, 2008.

He pleaded guilty to the charge and In­spec­tor Mary Aldridge said that on May 20, 2008 De­tec­tive Garda Donal O’Leary had met with Mr. Cor­co­ran of Shel­ton Abbey who told him that a prison of­fi­cer, Of­fi­cer Toner, had con­fis­cated the mo­bile phone from Maguire. On June 10, 2008 Maguire ad­mit­ted the phone was his to De­tec­tive O’Leary.

The court heard Maguire had re­ceived a five-year prison sen­tence for rob­bery in Wick­low Cir- cuit Court on May 24, 2005.

Maguire told Judge Con­nel­lan he had been re­leased last June and hadn’t been in trou­ble since then. Judge Con­nel­lan handed down a six-month sus­pended sen­tence and or­der Maguire to sign a bond to keep the peace for one year.
