Man with over 300 convictions who urinated on cafe window jailed for one month
Carl Delgarno told gardaí that the "people in the shop were liars".
A SERIAL public order offender arrested for urinating against a cafe window in central Dublin had more than 300 previous criminal convictions, a court heard.
Carl Delgarno (42) hurled abuse at gardaí when he was challenged, and had a Stanley knife on him when he was searched in another incident.
Judge Treasa Kelly jailed him for a month at Dublin District Court.
Delgarno, of no fixed address, pleaded guilty to threatening, abusive and insulting behaviour, as well the separate charge of possession of a Stanley knife.
He went to Butlers Cafe on Grafton Street and was abusive to staff on April 22, 2021.
On May 4, 2021 he was arrested at Butlers cafe on Wicklow Street, where he was abusive to staff.
He told gardaí that the "people in the shop were liars".
On May 12, 2021, Delgarno returned to the Grafton Street cafe at 12.30am and urinated up against the window.
He was abusive to the investigating gardaí and was shown CCTV footage of him doing it.
Delgarno was found with a Stanley knife on O'Connell Street on May 16 last month.
His previous convictions included 64 for breach of the peace and 40 for being intoxicated in public.
Defence solicitor John Feaheny said the accused was homeless and had been in and out of prison in recent years.
Judge Kelly said the knife charge was serious and imposed the sentence on that count.
