Enniscorthy teenager in breach of barring order
BREACH of an interim barring order resulted in an 18-year-old man being brought before the district court last week.
Stephen Doyle, with an address previously listed as 3 Fr Murphy Close was charged with criminal damage to the value of €150 to a car at Fr Murphy Close last Christmas Eve, breaching the interim barring order taken out by his mother at 3 Fr Murphy Close on February 15 and failing to appear before the court on February 14.
The court heard that Doyle had numerous previous convictions including theft and criminal damage. His mother Anne Doyle, who had taken out the barring order, was present in court as the case was heard and Barrister Eugene Manley told the court that Stephen had been in custody since February 16.
Mr Manley said that he could provide a new address at 87 St Aidan’s Crescent and said that his client had problems with drugs which needed to be addressed.
Judge Cheatle asked Ms Doyle if she wanted her son to still stay away from the house, to which she said she did. On the criminal damage charge, Judge Cheatle handed down a two month prison sentence, back dated to when Doyle entered custody. On the breach of the barring order, he put him on a Probation Bond for 12 months with the conditions that he engage with the Probation Service and reside at 87 St Aidan’s Crescent.
