Warrant issued for troubled teen
A JUDGE has ordered the arrest of a troubled teenager facing a knife-possession charge.
The boy was due to appear before Judge John O'Connor at Dublin Children's Court. Defence solicitor Gareth Noble said he refused to come to court. His family had "broken up" as a result of his problems and he has been "self-harming for some time".
The court also heard that the teenager's school placements have broken down. Judge O'Connor issued a bench warrant for the boy's arrest.
