Addict jailed for violent raid and imprisonment of receptionist
A MAN has been jailed for three years for a violent robbery where he held a guesthouse receptionist against her will.
David Lee (40) of Poplar Row, Ballybough, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to robbery and false imprisonment of the woman at Celtic Lodge, Talbot Street, on June 15, 2011. He has 54 previous convictions.
Garda Mairead Murphy said Lee made full admissions but claimed he was suffering from psychosis because of his drug abuse.
