Teenager has ‘se­ri­ous threat against his life’

Bray People - - NEWS -

THE par­ents of a teen with a ‘se­ri­ous threat against his life’ re­fused to come to court with him in Bray last Thurs­day.

The 16-year-old was fac­ing Judge David Kennedy on a charge of theft. No par­ent was present in court. The court heard that he was seen on the roof of the house and found in pos­ses­sion of stolen prop­erty.

In­spec­tor De­clan McCarthy told the judge that his par­ents had also re­fused to come to the garda sta­tion when the boy was ar­rested. A Peace Com­mis­sioner acted in loco par­en­tis.

‘ There should be an ap­pli­ca­tion on be­half of the HSE to have him taken in to care,’ said Judge Kennedy.

It emerged that the teenager had bro­ken ex­ist­ing bail con­di­tions when he was ar­rested in Bray.

Gar­dai ob­jected to re­leas­ing him on bail. A bar­ris­ter for the de­fence said that there were dif­fi­cul­ties in re­la­tion to the HSE due to a ‘se­ri­ous threat against his life.’ A rep­re­sen­ta­tive from the body will be in court on the next oc­ca­sion. The ju­ve­nile was re­manded in Cus­tody to next week.
