More time for compensation
A BENCH warrant for a defendant’s arrest was issued and then cancelled at Gorey District Court, when he turned up after his case had initially been called.
Jonathan Kearns (32) of Old Dublin Road, Enniscorthy, was charged with stealing €200 from Sharon Cowman at Duffry Hill on November 21 of 2017, €950 from Mark Codd at Redmond Street on September 21 of 2017 and of unlawfully possessing drugs at Monart on November 25 of 2017.
When the case was initially called, solicitor David Tarrant said that he hadn’t seen his client and that the case had been adjourned for him to pay compensation.
When his client eventually arrived, Mr Tarrant said that, unfortunately, Kearns didn’t have any further compensation to pay at the moment as the promise of work had fallen through.
He asked for a further six weeks to make payments and Judge Haughton agreed to this, putting the case back until March 14.
