Judge orders youth banned from Dublin City Centre
A YOUTH has been banned from Dublin city-centre after being charged over a series of burglaries at Reads bookshop on Nassau Street.
The 17-year-old appeared at the Dublin Children's Court yesterday charged with four counts of trespassing and committing thefts at the shop, on July 6, twice on July 7 and again on July 8 last.
The youth, who lives in north Dublin, “made no reply” when charged, Garda Cathal Feely told Judge John O'Connor.
He also said that directions from the DPP needed to be obtained.
Judge O'Connor ordered the boy, who has not yet entered a plea, to appear again in September.
He agreed to set bail terms sought by Gda Feely. The boy was banned, for the duration of the case, from being in the entire Dublin city-centre area, except for court appearances and scheduled meetings with his solicitor.
The boy, who was accompanied to his hearing by his father and older brother, was also ordered to stay away from another suspect in the case and to obey a 10pm to 8am curfew. Legal aid was granted.
