His client had issues with drink which contributed to his behaviour.“His favourite drink at one stage was fat frogs and that didn’t help his cause”, Mr O’Donnell added.Imposing 12 month concurrent sentences for each breach of the exclusion order, Judge Keane said the defendant had an appalling record and it was obvious he believed “he can come and go to this address as he pleases”.A three month sentence was imposed for the possession of the knife and he was fined for the theft offence.Recognisance in the event of an appeal was set at €1,000.
