    Child found guilty following Jobstown protest, wins appeal

    Now an adult, the State did not contest the appeal.

    https://www.independent.ie/irish-new...-36376773.html

    Will or should there be consequences for any of the parties involved in a child being falsely found guilty?

    The judge in the original trial had to work with the evidence presented, at the time, and facilitated the child in never having a formal conviction (a decent thing to do)

    Yep. Do you think that an innocent person should have to fund their own defence?

    And again - the establishment continue a vendetta attempting to criminalise the Jobstown protest.

    Despite the fact that all the defendants were either acquitted or had the charges dropped against them - the report that this boy had his conviction overturned - RTE include this in their report
    One remaining man pleaded guilty to criminal damage to a garda car and will be sentenced next year.
    knowing full well that this incident did not happen during the anti-water charges protest in Jobstown, the individual involved was not at the protest, the incident occurred hours after the protest ended and was related to a completely different Garda operation involving the serving of a warrant.

    But as usual - don't let the truth get in the way of criminalising protest.

    Parents should not bring or encourage their children to attend protest marches or to engage in anti-social behaviour.
