A LETTERKENNY man has been disqualified from driving for drug-driving.
Padhraic Marron (22) with an address at Mountain Top, Letterkenny, was stopped by the Roads Policing Unit at a checkpoint at 7.10pm on May 23, 2018 at Drumbarnett, Manorcunningham.
Marron was said to have been ‘disorientated’ when spoken to by Gardaí and when samples were taken he was found to be over the legal limits for the presence of cannabis and cocaine.
Solicitor for Marron, Ms Donna Crampsie, said Marron, a 32-year-old electrician, was aware of the serious charges which had a ‘devastating affect on his life’.
“He has lost his job as a result of the charges,” Ms Crampsie said. “He has no income at all and he has lost his accommodation as he was not able to keep up the payments.”
Judge Paul Kelly fined Marron €300, giving him six months to pay, and disqualified him from driving for one year.
