Six-month sus­pended sen­tence

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A MAN re­ceived a six-month cus­to­dial sen­tence sus­pended for two years af­ter plead­ing guilty to three charges of not com­ply­ing with a civil or­der.

John Wolo­han (80), 4 St Michael Close Ark­low, had failed to com­ply with a civil or­der be­tween April 18 and April 21 2018, April 23, 2018, and June 6, 2018, at Leda Muse, 16 Lower Ti­na­hask. Ark­low.

Solic­i­tor Padraig Hy­land told the court that €2,500 com­pen­sa­tion had been paid. The de­fen­dant had been made aware of the se­ri­ous­ness of the mat­ters.

The sergeant told the court that they had spo­ken with the in­jured party who ad­vised there had been no con­tact and CCTV had been in­stalled.

Judge David Kennedy said the mat­ter had im­pacted se­verely on the vic­tim.

He im­posed a six-month cus­to­dial sen­tence sus­pended for two years. He re­leased John Wo­la­han on his own bond of €1,000 to keep the peace.

Judge Kennedy also in­structed gar­dai to li­aise with the vic­tim if there was ‘any inkling of that be­hav­iour’ again.
