A MAN who allegedly called another person a “paedophile” has been fined £200 after admitting a charge of harassment.
Melvyn McCosh (51), of Old Cullybackey Road, Cullybackey, committed the offence last April.
A defence solicitor told Ballymena Magistrates Court the defendant had murmured “something” in a drunken state.
The judge said he was prepared to put the incident down to “drunkenness”.
He told McCosh if he continued to harass the other person it would not be a fine the next time.
