Judge quashes ‘texts’ con­vic­tion

Bray People - - Kilmacanoguediary -

A MAN WHO had sent threat­en­ing texts had his con­vic­tion quashed af­ter the in­jured party with­drew her com­plaint be­fore Judge Ger­ard Grif­fin at last week’s sit­ting of Wick­low Cir­cuit Court.

Paul Hunt, Cho­lah, Sea Road, Kil­coole had re­ceived a six-month prison sen­tence and been fined €1,000 when con­victed of the of­fence in the District Court. Last week Judge Grif­fin heard the in­jured party was in court and wanted to with­draw her com­plaint against Hunt. She told Judge Grif­fin was do­ing so of her own free will. Judge Grif­fin then al­lowed the ap­peal and va­cated the or­der made in the District Court.
