Pro­ba­tion Act is ap­plied

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

The ben­e­fit of the Pro­ba­tion Act was al­lowed to shoplifter Alan Wall (27) of 15 Sea Road, Ark­low, af­ter a guilty plea was en­tered at Gorey Dis­trict Court.

The judge learned how he scanned one item at the su­per­mar­ket’s self-ser­vice check­out but failed to pay for €100 worth of goods on a visit to Pet­titt’s in Gorey in Novem­ber of last year.

His so­lic­i­tor John O’Dono­van reck­oned that Wall was in­tox­i­cated at the time of the of­fence and that he was suf­fer­ing from the ef­fects of a bro­ken arm.
