Man In Custody Who Missed Father’s Funeral Is Seeking Bail To Visit Grave

1 Mins read

A man with a Limavady address missed his father’s funeral because he was in custody, Coleraine Magistrates Court heard on Monday.

Daryl Quigley (31), of Eventide Gardens, appeared via video link from prison. He is charged with stealing a £200 TV and having cannabis on December 3 last year. He is also accused of being disorderly at the Causeway Hospital in Coleraine on November 7, 2018.

On the same date he is accused of having cannabis and Diazepam; theft of a £600 mobile phone; assault on police and attempting to cause criminal damage to a digital recording system at Coleraine Police Station.

The court heard the defendant missed his father’s funeral as a result of being in custody. Defence solicitor Keith Kyle said a compassionate bail application was being made to allow the defendant to visit his dad’s grave for a few hours.

A police officer objected to bail saying that because of Quigley’s criminal record there was a risk of him re-offending no matter how short a time he is out of prison. Mr Kyle conceded there was a lengthy criminal record but he was only asking to be released for a short time and a bail surety was available.

Deputy District Judge Peter Magill adjourned the application and said if someone could pick up Quigley from prison and stay with him until he was returned he will re-visit the matter. “It’s a terrible shame he couldn’t get to the funeral,” the judge added.
