Taxi driver who robbed his customers up to 24 times keeps licence

I'm interested to hear comments about this scumbag and why they have let him keep his license

Quote:
A taxi driver who stole customers' bank cards and withdrew cash from their accounts up to two dozen times is still able to work despite his crimes.

Convicted thief Patrick Lyons (45), of Ventry Road, Cabra, received two-and-a-half years suspended after pleading guilty to withdrawing €550 from a woman's bank account after keeping her card when she used it to pay her fare last December.

Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard Lyons has previous convictions from between Dec- ember 2017 and August 2018 for similar offences of withdrawing money from customers' accounts using cards given to him to pay fares.
...
In 2013 he stole a customer's iPhone when it was left in his taxi.
how the hell can a suspended sentence be justified? sod him keeping his licence, he should have had his liberty revoked.

Easier to get reparations from someone who is at liberty and has a source of income. If he reoffends he's in jail.

If this is like the sexual assault case it's because it's down to the NTA and they may already have taken it away

As I guessed he had already lost his PSV licence and today failed to get it back

People need to stop jumping to conclusions
