Thread: Child found guilty following Jobstown protest, wins appeal

  1. #1

    Default 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)
    I have no money, but I love my life.

    Good to see justice has prevailed.

    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.
    Separate Church and State

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