Man facing litany of charges including theft and criminal damage

Defendant to return to court on May 9 for sentencing


A man who faces a litany of charges including theft and criminal damage must wait until next month to learn his fate.

Terrence Paul Maughan, of Clonard Gardens in Belfast, pleaded guilty to three counts of theft, two counts of criminal damage, driving whilst disqualified, possession of a blade in a public place and being in charge whilst unfit.

The 39-year-old was arraigned on the two driving matters at Craigavon Crown Court on Monday and entered pleas.

Court heard that these offences occurred on June 9, of 2017, on the Gilford Road, Lurgan, and Bredan Park, Magheralin.

Defence barrister stated: “There is a relatively up to date pre-sentence report but perhaps an amendment could be made to that.

He added: “There has been a substantial delay, in this case, it was at one point withdrawn.

“I wish to have a timeline of events before the court on that date which will serve as significant to the mitigation.”

The case will return to court on May 9 for sentencing.
