Gorey man in cus­tody on 16 ad­di­tional charges

Gorey Guardian - - NEWS -

SIX­TEEN charges were out­stand­ing against Thomas Hendy (25) of 30 River­chapel Court, Gorey when he was brought be­fore Judge John Chea­tle at the new Wex­ford Town court­house.

The list in­cluded counts of theft, crim­i­nal dam­age, tres­pass and public order mat­ters.

So­lic­i­tor John O’Dono­van told the Dis­trict Court that his client was al­ready in cus­tody serv­ing a sen­tence in the Mid­lands Prison.

He was do­ing well in jail, re­ported Mr O’Dono­van, and he was due for re­lease in April.

Sergeant Gary Rayner pointed out that all the mat­ters on the court list had been pre­vi­ously dealt with by Judge Ger­ard Haughton and it was agreed that he should be the one to fi­nalise the pend­ing mat­ters.

Mr O’Dono­van in­di­cated that he would not be avail­able to ap­pear be­fore Judge Ger­ard Haughton if the mat­ter was ad­journed to Fe­bru­ary 19.

In­stead, all charges were put back to the Dis­trict Court sit­ting in Gorey on Fe­bru­ary 21.

The so­lic­i­tor re­quested a prison gov­er­nor’s re­port and uri­nal­y­sis read-out to be avail­able on that date.
