Musician Duke Special appears in Dundalk court on charge of dangerous driving
Musician Peter Wilson, better known as Duke Special, appeared in Dundalk District Court yesterday to face a charge of dangerous driving.
Solicitor Eleanor Kelly asked Judge Flann Brennan to put back the case to hear a summary of the evidence against her client. Ms Kelly also asked the judge to grant legal aid, saying her client was a self-employed musician with three children. Any driving conviction would have a “detrimental” effect on his career. The judge said he did not grant legal aid for driving offences. Mr Wilson (42), Lomond Avenue, Belfast, faces a charge of dangerous driving on the M1 at Gibbstown in August.
