Avoided con­vic­tion

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

AN EN­NIS­COR­THY man has man­aged to avoid a drugs con­vic­tion in ex­change for mak­ing a do­na­tion to the Corn­mar­ket Project in Wex­ford town.

David Jor­dan (26) of Mile­house Road pleaded guilty to pos­sess­ing €30 worth of cannabis when stopped by gar­daí at Tem­ple­shan­non on April 3 last.

So­lic­i­tor Lana Do­herty told the court that it was a first of­fence and that her client apol­o­gised to the court. She said that he had am­bi­tions to travel one day and asked the Judge to leave Jor­dan with­out a con­vic­tion.

Judge Haughton agreed to do this and ap­ply the Pro­ba­tion Act in ex­change for a €200 do­na­tion to the Corn­mar­ket Project.
