Bray People - - NEWS -

A GLE­NEALY man who picked up his fifth con­vic­tion for driv­ing with­out in­sur­ance gave 1,000 chil­dren free paint­balling.

David Wachucha, 1 An­nes­brook, Gle­nealy, ap­peared at Bray District Court last Thurs­day.

The mat­ter had been put back for com­mu­nity ser­vice.

‘I don’t think there’ll be any point in send­ing him to prison,’ said Judge David Kennedy who handed down 200 hours of com­mu­nity ser­vice in lieu of four months in prison as well as a €1,500 fine. For driv­ing while disqual­i­fied he fined him €500 as well as a three month sus­pended sen­tence. ‘ Any fur­ther and there will be a cus­to­dial sen­tence,’ said Judge Kennedy.

Wachucha pleaded guilty in Fe­bru­ary to hav­ing no in­sur­ance, no driv­ing li­cence, and driv­ing while disqual­i­fied at Rath­drum on June 22 last. He of­fered the char­i­ta­ble ges­ture at his paint­balling fa­cil­ity as a to­ken of re­morse, the court heard.
