Had co­caine worth €100

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

CO­CAINE user Darragh Cor­ri­gan (23) from Kyle, Ou­lart must wait un­til af­ter Christ­mas to dis­cover whether or not he will have a crim­i­nal record.

Ap­pear­ing at the Dis­trict Court in Gorey, the ac­cused ac­cepted that he had €100 worth of the drug at Lit­ter­more, Kil­muck­ridge on June 17.

He was a pas­sen­ger in a car at the time.

The court was told that Cor­ri­gan, who came to court with his mother and with solic­i­tor Caitri­ona Walsh, had no pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions.

Ms Walsh sought to avoid a con­vic­tion be­ing im­posed and said her client had al­ready re­ceived a ‘heart­felt ear­ful’ from his mother since she learned about the pros­e­cu­tion ear­lier in the week.

How­ever, Judge Ger­ard Haughton was not im­pressed when the de­fen­dant said he was not sure whether drug screen­ing would show up clear.

The case was put back for fi­nal­i­sa­tion on Jan­uary 4.
