Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

A SUS­PENDED jail sen­tence was handed down in the Dis­trict Court to He­len Dun­don with an ad­dress in The Elms, Park Av­enue, Gorey for a mo­tor in­sur­ance of­fence.

The court was told that the 30-year-old mother of seven was a re­peat offender and that she had al­ready been dis­qual­i­fied from driv­ing by a judge in Dublin.

‘She knows she is fac­ing a jail sen­tence,’ said solic­i­tor David Tarrant, who sug­gested that his client had learned her les­son.

Judge Ger­ard Haughton set a term of five months im­pris­on­ment but de­cided to sus­pend the sen­tence, bind­ing Ms Dun­don to the peace for two years.

She was banned from driv­ing for six years.
