Threat of jail for re­peat mo­tor in­sur­ance of­fender

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

A PRO­BA­TION re­port was or­dered on re­peat of­fender Craig Dixon of 37 McCur­tain Street, Gorey as he ap­peared be­fore the District Court on mo­tor in­sur­ance charges.

It was ac­cepted that Dixon had no in­sur­ance at Gorey in Oc­to­ber of 2016 and again at Seamount in June of last year.

Judge Kevin Staunton made no se­cret of the fact that he was con­sid­er­ing a prison sen­tence af­ter learn­ing that the de­fen­dant had pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions of a sim­i­lar na­ture. How­ever, solic­i­tor Lana Do­herty urged the court to con­sider that her client was now a fa­ther and that he had ob­tained work in con­struc­tion, trav­el­ling daily to Dublin. Dixon had ma­tured and turned a cor­ner, Ms Do­herty sug­gested. The case was put back to Oc­to­ber to al­low prepa­ra­tion of the pro­ba­tion re­port and the judge ad­vised him to stay out of trou­ble in the mean­time.
