….Wall had been remanded in custody earlier this week after evidence was first heard in the case because Judge Ring said the â€œcourt has run out of rope and generosityâ€.
She noted then from his many previous convictions from the Children Court that Wall had been given both probation bonds and suspended sentences for his offending behaviour in the past.
â€œI presume your two-night stay in prison was not pleasant,â€ Judge Ring said before she warned Wall that she had the power to extend that stay.
Judge Ring restored Wallâ€™s bail and adjourned sentencing to July after advising Garda David Morris that if there was any problem with Wall, â€œeven intoxication in a public placeâ€ in the meantime, he was to be brought back before the court.
Judge Ring also asked that Wall be assessed to see if he was suitable for a restorative justice programme and told Wall that this may mean that he will meet Mr Yu â€œand we will see what he has to say to youâ€. She also ordered a probation report for that date.
