Told not to take law into his own hands


A 19-year-old Lurgan man was told not to take the law into his own hands after he pleaded guilty at Craigavon Court to criminal damage.

Caolan Murray from Ailsbury Park was ordered to pay £260 towards £390 worth of damage he did to a Jaguar car on February 16 this year.

Murray, who is unemployed, and has already been given 100 hours community service by the court for another offence, was ordered by the Magistrate Mervyn Bates to do a further 100 hours.

Murray’s solicitor claimed the defendant had carried out the offence following an altercation at his mother’s home.
