Jeremy McConnell has been found guilty of trespassing after he broke into a woman's home in February
Jeremy McConnell has been convicted of trespassing.
The former 'Celebrity Big Brother' star appeared in court in Dublin, Ireland, yesterday (14.09.17) to plead guilty to the charge after he drunken broke into a 27-year-old woman's house in the Irish capital at 6:30am on February 10 while running away from two men who had chased him from a nearby house party on the same estate.
The 28-year-old hunk apologised for his actions and claimed he'd got lost after he left the bash and entered the house in Skerries through an unlocked back door.
Addressing Balbriggan District Court, Jeremy - who has had a string of legal issues -
said: "I am extremely apologetic. I was intoxicated and went into the wrong house."
Judge Dempsey convicted Jeremy of trespassing and fined him €150 euros (£134).
Speaking after court, Jeremy told waiting press he just wants to move on with his life and can't express how sorry he is to the woman who found him in her kitchen.
He said: "It was last year at a rough time. I am very sorry to the lady. I've paid my fine and can finally move forward. She made me a lovely cuppa too."
Jeremy's conviction comes just as he's about to start his community service for assaulting his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Davis, with whom he has nine-month-old son Caben-Albi, at her home in Liverpool during a blazing row at the beginning of March.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "Jeremy has now moved to Cardiff and will start his community service next week.
"He's living with 'Make Or Break' contestant and friend Richard Cull. They've been friends for a long time and Rich has help him through a difficult year.
"It's not yet known what he will be doing but it could be decorating of council-owned areas, removing graffiti or working in a charity shop."
As well as his community service, Jeremy was also ordered to pay £1,000 in court costs, £1,000 in compensation to Stephanie and a victims surcharge of £115.
