Man Who Tried To Rob Conor McGregor’s Pub Is Jailed
The other defendant will be sentenced at a later date.
One of the men who attempted to rob Conor McGregor’s pub is facing the consequences.
Jason Paget, 35, was sentenced for four and a half years in prison during his trial last Thursday at Dublin Circuit Court. His cohort, Charles Darcy, 34, will be sentenced at a later date as they are awaiting the completion of his psychological reports.
Paget’s sentencing stems back to an alleged attempted robbery of McGregor’s pub in Dublin on August 12, 2021.
Gardai – the national police service of Ireland – were reportedly on patrol in Drimnagh and came across a vehicle that was running with its headlights on outside Mable Arch Pub. One Garda said the building’s alarm was ringing and they heard noises, which is when Paget and Darcy were found attempting to push a cash register under the door.
The men fled, but Darcy was later found hiding in a bush; he claimed to have left a house of a married woman after her husband returned. Paget was arrested near the scene around 30 minutes later.
Paget has 15 previous convictions including aggravated sexual assault.
