Teen broke his bail conditions

A 17-YEAR-OLD boy accused of robbery has been banned from an area in north Dublin.

The boy, who has not yet entered a plea, is accused of robbery of a mobile phone at Collins Avenue, in Killester, north Dublin, on May 10.

Last month the Children's Court ordered the boy to obey a 9pm to 8am curfew and have no contact with the injured party.

Yesterday Judge William Early heard that the boy had broken his bail conditions.

The teen was warned by the judge that he could no longer go to the Dublin 5 area.

Judge Early told him that he would be held in custody if he continued to breach bail terms. The boy, who was accompanied by his mother, was ordered to appear again in three weeks pending directions from the DPP.
