Public order and motoring charges
A TAGHMON man already serving lengthy jail for assault and violent disorder had public order and motoring charges against him considered in the District Court last week.
Twenty-seven year old Philip Sinnott of Main Street, Taghmon came to the attention of Gardaí at Monastery Avenue on October 31 last as he spun the front wheels of his car violently.
In court, he accepted that such behaviour was unacceptable and entered a plea of guilty to a charge of driving without due consideration. He also admitted threatening/abusive behaviour at the car park of the Maldron Hotel, an offence dating back to July of 2010.
Sinnott's record included the current seven years being served in Wheatfield Prison. Judge Gerard Haughton formally handed down a three month sentence for the public order offence and marked the motoring offence taken into consideration. Penalty points apply, it was pointed out.
