Man swears ‘in celebration’ in front of judge after hearing baseball bat charge has been withdrawn

1 Mins read

A MAN swore as he celebrated news that a number of charges he faces – including possessing a baseball bat as an offensive weapon – were being withdrawn by prosecutors.

However, Cain McCarthy (23), of Castleroe Road, Coleraine, is still charged with possessing cannabis and he is accused of other offences on a later date which prompted District Judge Peter King to tell him: “You have a long way to go before you can start celebrating”.

The defendant appeared before Coleraine Magistrates Court from prison where he has been on remand.

He had been charged with having a baseball bat on March 19 this year and was also accused of inflicting grievous bodily harm on a man; assaulting a female; causing criminal damage to the female’s TV and causing criminal to a window and possession of cannabis.

The baseball bat charge related to New Row in Coleraine.

At court on September 16 a prosecutor said the only charge remaining on that charge sheet is the possession of cannabis.

The cases were adjourned for a week and defence solicitor Garrett Greene said a bail application would be made then.
