Robbery 'lookout' is spared prison
a MAN who raided a Permanent TSB office with an armed accomplice has escaped a jail sentence.
Gda Dan D'Arcy told the court Joseph Prendergast (50) acted more as a lookout as Paul Carabini (48) threatened staff and customers with a knife.
Prendergast, of Cappagh Drive, Finglas, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to stealing €3,500 from Permanent TSB on November 16, 2012. Carabini, of Mellows Road, Finglas, received a 10-year sentence with the final three suspended last February.
