A BARNTOWN motorist who pleaded guilty to dangerous driving causing death has had sentence adjourned.
Before Judge Barry Hickson at Wexford Circuit Criminal Court was Eoin Crosbie, of Ardcara, Keelogues, Barntown, who pleaded guilty to dangerous driving at Knockalone in Barntown on April 3, 2010, causing the death of 26-year-old Andrew Casey.
23-year-old Crosbie also pleaded guilty to failing to give appropriate information to a member of An Garda Siochana; having no insurance, and with driving with excess alcohol.
Defence Counsel, Patrick McCarthy, S.C. asked the court for an adjournment to the June sessions. The defendant has a course organised and will be finished around that time. He also sought the preparation of a Probation and Welfare report.
Directing the preparation of a Probation and Welfare report, Judge Hickson said the defendant should stand disqualified from driving on the no insurance charge from the day of court. He said he would adjourn the length of disqualification until the day of hearing.
Sentencing was adjourned to June 25.
