A 40-year-old man who caused more than €1,400 dam­age to a car has had a crim­i­nal dam­age charge struck out.

Judge Cough­lan made that or­der af­ter hear­ing Dwayne Rus­sell, 6 Whitechapel Road, Blan­chard­stown, Dublin 15, paid full com­pen­sa­tion of €1,480 in re­spect of the driver’s door of a Toy­ata Al­tezza.

He pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted a crim­i­nal dam­age charge aris­ing out of an in­ci­dent in River Lane, Dundalk, on 26 June, 2016.

On that oc­ca­sion, Rus­sell’s so­lic­i­tor said he was run­ning back­wards when he ac­ci­den­tally ran into the ve­hi­cle.

Last week, so­lic­i­tor Paula Tier­nan added her client is un­em­ployed. He had saved for a long time to meet the re­pair bail.

It was ac­cepted the in­jured party that what oc­curred was not in­ten­tional.
