War­rant for ar­rest of driver (70)

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A WAR­RANT was is­sued for the ar­rest of 70-year-old An­thony Mol­loy of Bryanstown, Foulksmills as he failed to show up at the District Court sit­ting in Wex­ford to deal with a mo­tor in­sur­ance charge.

Judge Ger­ard Haughton de­cided to go ahead in the ab­sence of the ac­cused and hear ev­i­dence from Garda Anne Marie Myler.

She told how she came across Mol­loy at New­bawn on July 15 last when he was driv­ing a 1997 Gal­way reg­is­tered ve­hi­cle.

He failed to pro­duce ev­i­dence that he was in­sured and Garda Myler also noted that he had no li­cence and no valid NCT.

The bench war­rant was made out by Judge Haughton once he heard that the no-show de­fen­dant had a record of 31 pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions and that he al­ready stood dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing for six years in 2010 fol­low­ing a con­vic­tion, also for driv­ing with­out in­sur­ance.
