Carrick-on-Shannon Courthouse

Adjourning matters against Bernard Stokes, 10 Shancastle Avenue, Clondalkin until December 18 Judge Kevin P Kilrane said, “If you re-offend in the meantime you will go to prison.”

Mr Stokes appeared before last week’s sitting of Carrick-on-Shannon District Court charged with theft of three Iphones to the value of €1,580 from Carphone Warehouse on June 23, 2017. The court heard the stolen property was recovered.

Prior to adjourning matters, Judge Kilrane referred to the fact that the defendant has previously committed offences in the locality in 2014, 2015 and 2016 and granted An Garda Siochana liberty to re-enter matters.

Addressing the defendant Judge Kilrane said, “If you reoffend in the meantime you will go to prison. If you don’t reoffend in all probability you will not go to prison.”

The defendant was represented by Niamh McGovern.
