Accused urinated in IFSC bank bike shed

A FATHER of one caught trespassing and urinating in a bike shed at a bank in the IFSC has been given a three-month suspended sentence.

John Duggan (33) had no permission to be in the shed and no explanation when he was caught. Judge Bryan Smyth suspended the sentence for a year at Dublin District Court.

Duggan, of St Teresa's Gardens, Dublin 8, was found guilty of trespassing with intent to commit an offence at Citibank, North Wall Quay, on April 9, 2014. He was found not guilty of a separate count of indecency in a garda station on August 15, 2013. He had denied both charges.

CELL

A security manager at Citibank told the court the accused went through the barrier entrance into the underground car park, which was private property.

Duggan was in the bicycle shed looking at bikes and had started to urinate in the corner when he was found.

In the other incident, he was accused of indecency by urinating on a cell floor at Kevin Street garda Station after he was arrested.

Gardai alleged the urine seeped out into the hall.

The accused denied the offence and Judge Smyth dismissed that charge.
