Catalin Gabriel Cirligeanu was charged with the theft of six mobile phones from Havana nightclub on 29 June and 6 August of last year. The theft was aggravated by the value of the stolen items, which exceeded €2,300. Cirligeanu was also charged with recidivism, having been convicted of another theft, for which he received a one-year prison sentence, suspended for two years.
Cirligeanu admitted the theft charges but disputed the value of the stolen items, an aggravating factor to the charges.
In view of his admission, magistrate Doreen Clarke found Cirligeanu guilty of the charges. She dismissed his challenge to the aggravating factor. The Romanian was convicted of theft, aggravated by time and value of the item stolen, and handed a 22-month sentence.
