9pm curfew for teen who damaged cars
A 16-YEAR-OLD boy has been ordered to obey a curfew and had his movements restricted after he was charged today with damaging cars in north Dublin suburbs.
He is accused of criminal damage to two cars at Croaghpatrick Road, in Cabra and Villa Park, on the Navan Road, on January 23 last.
He is also charged with theft of an iphone at the second location and had no reply when the offences were put to him, Judge John O'Connor was told at the Dublin Children's Court today.
The boy, who was accompanied to his hearing by his mother and his solicitor, could face “further charges” and directions need to be obtained from the DPP, the judge heard.
There was no objection to bail and Judge O'Connor agreed to a prosecution request to set conditions.
The boy has not yet entered a plea and was warned by the judge that to remain on bail he must abstain from alcohol, obey a 9pm to am and to stay away from seven residential areas in the Dublin 7 area.
The youth will face his next hearing in February.
