A MAN who permitted a Letterkenny premises he was renting to be used as a brothel was given a suspended sentence at the local District Court this morning.

Ionel Iulian Bojoaga (39) of 7 Duffy’s Lane, Letterkenny, was sentenced to eight months imprisonment, which was suspended for two years.


Gardai had searched 16 Riverside Apartments on June 19 where they found a number of foreign national females in various states of undress in rooms with clients.

Bojoaga, who was renting the apartment but living at a different address with his partner and two children, was subsequently arrested and charged with the offence.

Judge Denis McLoughlin heard Bojoaga spent nearly seven weeks remanded in custody before bail was granted.
