Three charged with assault, imprisonment of young mum

A POWERLIFTER and two other men have appeared in court after they were charged with the alleged assault and false imprisonment of a mother.

Jody Curtin (33), of Claughaun Avenue, Garryowen, Limerick, appeared in Limerick District Court before Judge Eugene O'Kelly.

Mr Curtin, who has competed at national powerlifting championships in recent years, has been charged with assault causing harm to the young mother at an address in Limerick city on May 3 last.

He was arrested by gardai in Dublin earlier this week.

The State objected to a bail application made on behalf of Mr Curtin by his solicitor.

After hearing a lengthy bail application, Mr Curtin was denied bail by Judge O'Kelly.

The judge also said he would not impose any reporting restrictions.

Mr Curtin was remanded in custody to appear before the same court again on May 21 next.

Two other men have also appeared in connection with the same garda investigation.

Bail

David Casey (21), of Derryvinna, Clonlara, Co Clare, and Keith Turner McGrath (22), of Landscape House, Clonlara, Co Clare, have both been charged with false imprisonment of the woman at Thomondgate, Limerick city, on May 3 last.

Both men, who were also arrested earlier this week, were granted bail in Limerick district court.

They will next appear before the same court again on July 3 next.
