Court told of se­ries of charges

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A CARE­LESS driv­ing of­fence was among a num­ber of mat­ters out­stand­ing against Peter or PJ Kuhn (31) con­sid­ered in the Dis­trict Court at Wex­ford.

The ad­dress of the de­fen­dant was for­merly Grey Robin in Kil­more but Judge John Chea­tle learned that the de­fen­dant is now res­i­dent in Kerry and work­ing as a land­scape gar­dener.

The pros­e­cu­tion arose on March 25 when he was seen driv­ing er­rat­i­cally be­fore speed­ing away at 140 km/h from gar­daí who ac­ti­vated their blue flash­ing light.

The court heard that Kuhn had been threat­en­ing and abu­sive on an­other oc­ca­sion, to the ex­tent that he was pep­per sprayed by ar­rest­ing gar­daí. Also dealt with on a plea of guilty was fur­ther threat­en­ing be­hav­iour at Flana­gan’s shop in Castle­bridge where staff were told that the place would be burned down.

A charge re­lat­ing to pos­ses­sion of €60 worth of cannabis was be­fore the court too.

Judge John Chea­tle marked a fine of €250 for the care­less driv­ing and took all other mat­ters into con­sid­er­a­tion with­out fur­ther pun­ish­ment as the ac­cused had al­ready spent a month in cus­tody on re­mand.

The ac­cused said he was en­joy­ing his time in Lis­towel and do­ing well there.
