Teenager sent for trial on charges


A 19-year-old man has been returned for trial after he appeared at a preliminary enquiry last Friday at the local courthouse.

Gareth Liggett, Carnreagh, Craigavon, faces three charges. He is alleged to have unlawfully and maliciously caused grievous bodily harm to a man on October 6 last year.

He is also charged with possession of an offensive weapon at Edgarstown play park and attempting by force, threats or menace to cause another person not to report an assault to family members and police.

He was remanded on his own bail of £500 to appear for arraignment at Craigavon Crown Court on January 22.
