A BOOK of ev­i­dence was served re­cently on a man ac­cused of in­de­cent as­sault on per­sons un­der the age of 17, caus­ing un­nec­es­sary suf­fer­ing to those per­sons, and ill-treat­ment of an an­i­mal. James Clarke (63), 7 Devils Cot­tage, Bal­ly­hau­nis, County Mayo, ap­peared in Bray District Court for the pro­duc­tion of the book. The court heard that the DPP had con­sented for the mat­ter to be sent for­ward for trial to the cen­tral crim­i­nal court. The crimes are al­leged to have oc­curred be­tween May 1988, and May 1989, at Sea Road in Kil­coole.

There was no ap­pli­ca­tion for bail. Judge David Kennedy agreed to le­gal aid for two coun­cil, given the se­ri­ous na­ture of the charges.

The court heard that Clarke is serv­ing a sen­tence in Ar­bour Hill prison.
