Ac­cused of prof­it­ing from un­nec­es­sary elec­tri­cal work

Wexford People - - NEWS -

GER­ARD Beary from Lit­tle Ash, Ard Alainn, Castle­bridge stood ac­cused at the Dis­trict Court in Wex­ford of prof­it­ing from un­nec­es­sary elec­tri­cal work he car­ried out at the home of a 79-year-old woman with a vis­ual dis­abil­ity.

The de­fen­dant was charged by Garda Leonard Casey with an of­fence dat­ing back to De­cem­ber 2015.

It was al­leged that Beary made a phone call to Mary Malone claim­ing to be from the ESB about a prob­lem with her me­ter. He then charged her €700 to carry out the work.

He was later traced by de­tec­tives through mo­bile phone records. The mat­ter was ad­journed to Oc­to­ber 2 when the ac­cused will be asked to in­di­cate whether he in­tends to plead guilty or not guilty.
