Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

STEAL­ING a bot­tle of Cock­burns Port val­ued at €15.90 from Dunnes Stores in Gorey on June 28 of last year has re­sulted in a fine of €200 for Niko­lajs Prokopovs (26) with ad­dresses listed as 26 St Pe­ter’s Place, Ark­low, and 10 O’Con­nell Court, Clon­mel, Co Tip­per­ary.

Last Wed­nes­day’s sit­ting of Gorey District Court heard how Lat­vian national Prokopovs had six pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions, in­clud­ing threat­en­ing abu­sive be­hav­iour, pub­lic in­tox­i­ca­tion, dis­or­derly con­duct and fail­ure to ap­pear be­fore the court.

So­lic­i­tor Mark Quinn said that his client was in­tox­i­cated at the time that this of­fence oc­curred and had had prob­lems with al­co­hol. ‘Since then, he’s changed his lifestyle and he no longer drinks,’ Mr Quinn said. Upon hear­ing all the ev­i­dence, Judge Haughton con­victed and handed down the €200 fine.
