Sales rep fined for hit and run

The Argus - - NEWS -

A 53-year-old sales rep has been fined a to­tal of €1,600 on four hit and run charges.

Paul Casey, 88 Ard Na Mara, Black­rock, ad­mit­ted the of­fences which oc­curred last St. Pa­trick’s Day.

Sergeant Fin­tan McGroder said that on 17 March, 2017, the de­fen­dant re­versed into a parked car, then fled the scene.

He was iden­ti­fied by some­one who knew him.

Casey pleaded guilty to fail­ing to give the ap­pro­pri­ate in­for­ma­tion, fail­ing to re­main at the scene, fail­ing to re­port and fail­ing to stop.

So­lic­i­tor Niall Breen said his client sim­ply pan­icked, and is deeply em­bar­rassed over this.

His in­sur­ance com­pany had com­pen­sated the other party, and he has with him a fur­ther €800 com­pen­sa­tion to of­fer.

There are no pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions. Judge Cough­lan im­posed a €500 fine on each of three of the charges, and a €100 fine on the other.
