A Cavan man has been given a ten month suspended sentence and disqualified from driving for 30 years following a number of drug driving and dangerous driving offences.
On the second of January, 2020, 27 year old Jason Doyle stole a vehicle from a "vulnerable adult", who the court heard was "tricked" into giving over his car.
This stolen vehicle was involved in two hit and run incidents with parked vehicles in Tullymongan.
The vehicle, which was said to have been obtained by "tricking a vulnerable adult", was also driven dangerously on Main Street in Cavan.
Doyle fled from the vehicle and denied wrong doing or driving the vehicle upon arrest.
Cannabis was in also in his bloodstream at the time of arrest.
Doyle, who resided at 46 Lodgeview, Cootehill at the time of the incident, has 63 previous convictions, 13 of which are related to dangerous driving.
Doyle's solicitor said he was "going through a bad period" and is now "doing everything to try to stay away from crime".
His solicitor added that all his family are in Cavan, but Doyle has moved to Co Clare to "try and start a new life" and asked that a suspended sentence be considered.
Judge Raymond Finnegan disqualified Doyle from driving for 30 years and imposed a two, five month sentences to run consecutively, both of which are suspended for 20 months.
