Man who went out to ‘celebrate’ end of court case got into more trouble

1 Mins read

A Ballymena man who went out on the north coast to celebrate after a court case ended got into more trouble.

Justin Graham (20), of Lewis Park, appeared at Coleraine Magistrates Court on April 1 and admitted a charge of being disorderly in Portstewart on March 10 this year.
The court heard he had received a suspended sentence four days earlier at Antrim Crown Court.

A defence solicitor told Coleraine Court the Antrim court case had been hanging over the defendant with “immense pressure” for a long period and “ironically” Graham had gone out to Portstewart to “celebrate” that “things were working out for him now”.

The solicitor said the Crown Court case had been “stressful” for the defendant and whilst in Portstewart he had lost his house key and he had been attempting to get back into premises.

District Judge Peter King told the defendant that instead of “keeping your head down” he had decided within days of being in court to re-offend.

The judge fined the defendant £200 on the disorderly charge and referred the breach of the suspended sentence back to the Crown Court.
