Scis­sor­swielder es­capes con­vic­tion

The Kerryman (Tralee Edition) - - NEWS -

A MAN who pro­duced a scis­sors dur­ing an ar­gu­ment with an­other male, and who also threat­ened a woman in a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, was given the ben­e­fit of the Pro­ba­tion Act at Kenmare Dis­trict Court last week after the court heard he had not come to the at­ten­tion of the gar­daí since the in­ci­dents.

An­dre Reis with ad­dresses at 10 April Drive, Lodge Wood, and 34 Cill Mhuire Kenmare, had come be­fore Kenmare Dis­trict Court for as­sault and pub­lic or­der charges in­clud­ing threat­en­ing and abu­sive be­hav­iour, in re­la­tion to a row at Ard Bhearna Es­tate on Fe­bru­ary 11, 2017, and an­other row two days later.

Ev­i­dence had been heard at Kenmare Dis­trict Court in re­la­tion to the two in­ci­dents ear­lier this year and so­lic­i­tor Pádraig O’Con­nell said the case had been ad­journed to see how Mr Reis got on in the in­terim. He said the in­ci­dents were “quasi do­mes­tic” and that noth­ing had hap­pened since. This was con­firmed by Sgt Miriam Mull­hall Nolan, who said that it was a “break-down in re­la­tions” which had led to the in­ci­dents. Judge David Wa­ters gave him the ben­e­fit of the Pro­ba­tion Act in all mat­ters.
