Woman charged with stalking 98fm presenter Jeremy Dixon
A 41-YEAR-OLD Dublin woman has appeared in court charged with stalking popular 98fm presenter Jeremy Dixon.
Geraldine Delahunty with an address at Convent Lawns, Kylemore Road, Ballyfermot appeared before Judge Michael Walsh at Dublin District Court today. There was no objection to bail and she was remanded on bail to appear again in January.
She faces a single count contrary to section 10 of the Non Fatal Offences Against the Person Act for alleged harassment of Dublin Talks co-host Jeremy Dixon from August 4th, 2014, until January 16th this year.
Garda Steven Homan told Judge Walsh that the woman made no reply when the charge was put to her.
It was her first appearance before the court having been arrested and then charged at a Dublin garda station on an earlier date. The woman, who did not address the court, has not entered a plea to the charge.
Judge Walsh asked if there was any relationship between the defendant and the complainant and the garda said that there was not. The judge also acceded to a request from defence solicitor Michael Kelleher to grant free legal aid to the defendant who is unemployed.
Directions from the DPP were also required.
The offence, at district court level, can result in a fine and a sentence of up to twelve months.
Jeremy Dixon (40) presents “Dublin Talks” from 10am to 12 mid-day each weekday with Adrian Kennedy on 98FM, with nightly repeats at 10pm. They joined the station earlier this year after leaving FM104’s Phone Show, which they had presented together for 16 years. Dixon is also well known for his DJ work at nightclubs.
At the defendant's next hearing the case will be listed for a plea to be entered and a date for hearing to be set.
