A young Ballyronan man who smashed two glasses and a plate after arriving home heavily intoxicated, appeared at Magherafelt Magistrates Court on a criminal damage charge.

Mark Murray (24), of Lindsayville, had sentencing adjourned until April 19 next year to monitor his behaviour.

The judge said Murray would be given a Conditional Discharge depending on the Probation report and if there was no further offending. The court heard police were called to the defendant’s home on March 23 when he arrived home drunk.
