Grant, of Park Mor, Buncrana and Carlin of Keelogs, Linsfort, Buncrana made no reply when charged under Section of the Criminal Justice Act.Garda Inspector David Murphy said he was seeking a long adjournment to allow the State to investigate all matters.“This is a long and detailed investigation,” he said.However solicitor for Mr Grant, Paudge Dorrian, said his client has suffered because of previous reporting of the case.“An allegation was made in the press that this man was guilty of arson. This is damaging to him and his family. He has no hope of getting a fair trial.“People’s minds in the area have been polluted by wrongful allegations about this young man.“Every newspaper that published allegations of arson have identified my client by implication.“Now the State are seeking a long adjournment for some peculiar reason,” he said.He added that there was now “selective prosecution” taking place.Inspector Murphy said there was nothing peculiar about the case and rejected any claim of “selective prosecution.”He also sought to have a curfew imposed on Mr Grant claiming he would be “concerned about his activities.”However this was rejected by Judge Paul Kelly.Judge Kelly adjourned the case until December 8th but later changed this to September 15th next at Letterkenny District Court.TWO IN BUNCRANA COURT ON PETROL BOMB CHARGES was last modified: September 8th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncrana courtlast_img read more

Mum-of-three robbed pensioner 83, of €1,250 of Christmas money after snatching purse

first_imgA woman robbed an 83 year old lady of €1,250 after snatching her purse when she left a local butcher shop two days before Christmas.Mum-of-three Monica Rostas appeared before Letterkenny District Court charged with robbing Bridget McElcar in Ballybofey.Rostas, 28, spotted Mrs McElcar coming out of the shop and shoved a Big Issue magazine into her face and then snatched her purse at 1pm in the afternoon. Mrs McElcar, who has since died, managed to get the purse back but the money from the purse was missing.Garda Inspector Michael Harrison told the court that he believed another woman involved in the robbery at Chestnut Grove, Ballybofey managed to receive the money before fleeing.He added that Rostas, of Glenfinn Road, Ballybofey, had been threatening and abusive towards the pensioner who was vulnerable and scared.Around €150 in cash fell to the ground and was picked up by passers-by. Four other passers-by managed to come to Mrs McElcar’s assistance and Rostas was arrested.She initially denied any involvement and the balance of the missing money, €1,065 has never been recovered.Barrister for Ms Rostas, Gareth McGrory, said his client admitted it was an act of “immense stupidity” which she pleaded guilty to.He said his client had gather €2,000 from her uncle and she was prepared to provide compensation to Mrs McElcar’s family.He said she planned to leave Donegal and move to Belfast. Judge Paul Kelly described the incident as “a despicable crime.”“This was an absolutely despicable crime on an elderly woman. I suspect it was less impulsive than you make out as there was two people involved. It seems inconceivable that this woman has no idea of where the money is.“However, the fact that she is moving to Belfast and cash in lodged in court, I don’t see any great value in a custodial sentence,” he said.He sentenced Rostas to four months in prison but suspended it for 12 months on her own cash bond of €500. He also ordered that €1,500 of the cash lodged in court be handed over to the late Mrs McElcar’s family.Mum-of-three robbed pensioner 83, of €1,250 of Christmas money after snatching purse was last modified: September 27th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
