More time for com­pen­sa­tion

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

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.
