Man caused £850 damage to pensioner’s porch

1 Mins read

A Coleraine man who admitted causing criminal damage to glass which cost £850 to repair in the porch of an 80-year-old man’s home has been given a suspended jail term.
Gary Eastoe (35), of Millburn Road, committed the offence in September 2017.

At Coleraine Magistrates Court last year he was ordered to do 100 hours of unpaid work.

He failed to complete the hours and was brought back to court for breaching the Community Service Order.

A defence solicitor told the court on April 8 the defendant had medical difficulties.

Regarding the damage, the lawyer said Eastoe was discovered in the porch but had not used any violence against the homeowner.

The lawyer said Eastoe had no memory of what happened and didn’t know why he was at the property.

Eastoe had the community-based order revoked and replaced with a two months jail term, suspended for 14 months.
