Teen guilty of three assaults
A JUDGE has sought a psychological report on a teenager who repeatedly kicked a youth after he was already beaten semi-conscious.
The 17-year-old boy had pleaded guilty last year at the Children's Court to assault causing harm to the youth at James's Walk, in Rialto, Dublin 8 on June 5, 2010. He had also admitted assaults on two of the victim's friends.
Another juvenile was detained last year for his role in the attacks and yesterday the teenager was back before the court.
Judge Ann Ryan ordered a psychological report and remanded the teenager, who is being held in custody in relation to other proceedings, to appear again in two weeks.
