Sus­pended sen­tence

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

A TI­NA­HELY man who pleaded guilty to driv­ing while over the limit has re­ceived a sus­pended prison sen­tence at Ark­low Dis­trict Court.

Wayne O’Driscoll of Beech­wood Drive, Ti­na­hely, was charged with com­mit­ing the of­fence on March 8, 2017 af­ter he was stopped by gar­daí. A read­ing of 74mcg al­co­hol to 100 ml breath was given in court.

Judge Alan Mitchell ques­tioned whether or not the de­fen­dant had learned his les­son, given the fact that he has two sim­i­lar pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions.

‘If you are found driv­ing a ve­hi­cle the gar­daí may re-en­ter the mat­ter,’ he said.

The four-month sen­tence was sus­pended for two years in the de­fen­dant’s own bond of €100 and a six­month driv­ing ban was also handed down.
