Young driver over le­gal al­co­hol limit

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A POS­I­TIVE breath test for al­co­hol showed that Steven Doyle (26) from Nor­ris­town, Cleariestown was over the limit for driv­ing at White­rock Hill in Wex­ford in the early hours of De­cem­ber 4, 2016.

The case against the build­ing worker and fa­ther of one came to court on Oc­to­ber 2 where de­fend­ing bar­ris­ter Dorothy Dono­van sought to have the pros­e­cu­tion dis­missed.

She was con­cerned that orig­i­nals of pa­per­work were not in court and also felt that her client was not given an ad­e­quate warn­ing as he was ar­rested.Her ar­gu­ments proved un­suc­cess­ful as a fine of €700 came with the manda­tory two year ban from driv­ing.
