A WOULD-BE Romeo who tried to woo his Juliet with a bouquet of flowers ended up in court after he trespassed in the back garden of a house, a court heard.

Johannes Aramayo (30) put the homeowner in fear when she saw him standing on a table in her back garden.

Judge John Lindsay left Aramayo without a conviction after he donated €50 to charity, joking the defendant "would have to sing" for it.

Aramayo, with an address at Hardwicke Street, Dublin 3, admitted trespassing at Avondale Court in Blackrock on February 16, 2021.

Sergeant Dylan Brady told Dún Laoghaire District Court that the owner of the house found Aramayo standing on a garden table in their back garden.

The defendant was holding a bunch of flowers at the time.

Sgt Brady said the homeowner was put in fear by the defendant's actions.

The court heard Aramayo had never been in trouble and had no previous convictions.

"Was he serenading someone at an upper window?" Judge Lindsay asked. "Was he looking for his Juliet?

Defence solicitor Ronnie Lynam said the incident was "close to that", adding that the judge was "robbing me of my plea of mitigation".

Mr Lynam said there was a relatively innocent background to this matter, and Aramayo wished to apologise for his behaviour.

The solicitor said Aramayo wanted the homeowner to know that he meant no harm, he had apologised, and that he had discontinued his interest.
