A 39 year old man who was prosecuted for driving without insurance or a licence on the Dublin Road, Haggardstown, was given a four month suspended sentence at Dundalk District Court last week.
The court heard Michael Davidson with an address at Meeting House Lane, Linenhall Street, Dundalk had 41 previous convictions – most of which were for road traffic offences.
The defence solicitor said her client had a number of difficulties and was working hard on his rehabilitation.
He accepted he shouldn’t have been driving on the occasion and asked the court not to impose a custodial sentence.
In addition to imposing a four month sentence, which she suspended for 12 months, Judge Eirinn McKiernan disqualified the defendant from driving for four years.
