At around 8.40pm on 21 October, 2016, McGlynn was observed ‘acting aggressively and spitting in the direction of the injured party’, an employee at Paddy Power on Main Street, Letterkenny.Solicitor Kieran Dillon said that McGlynn’s health is deteriorating.“He deeply regrets this and is ashamed by his behaviour to the young lady,” Mr Dillon said.“He went in to apologise and it was graciously accepted. He bought flowers as a gesture of remorse and he has tried to make amends.“It is a bad situation, which he acknowledges and he realises that there is a lot of baggage that he carries.”Judge Paul Kelly handed down a one-month sentence, to be suspended for 12 months, and on the other counts McGlynn was fined €100 and €50.Suspended sentence for man who spat at bookies employee was last modified: September 11th, 2017 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:James McGlynnJudge Paul KellyletterkennyLetterkenny District Courtlast_img
