Rape charge for teen

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

A 19-year-old charged with rape ap­peared in Bray Dis­trict Court last week. The rape is al­leged to have taken place last spring.

The de­fence made an ap­pli­ca­tion for bail so that the de­fen­dant could avail of a bed in psy­chi­atric in­sti­tu­tion.

Judge David Kennedy said that just be­cause he might rec­om­mend an assessment does not mean it will happen. He said he was in­clined to re­mand him in cus­tody for the assessment none­the­less, and rec­om­mend all ap­pro­pri­ate med­i­cal at­ten­tion, to in­clude the assessment.

The mat­ter was ad­journed for men­tion.
