1 Mins read

A man who is well-known in Coleraine for handing out Gospel tracts to passers-by is to contest charges of being disorderly and resisting police.

David Campbell McConnell (61), of Liswatty Road, Coleraine, is accused of committing offences on March 31 last year at Park Street in the town.

The alleged circumstances of the incident have yet to be outlined to the court but it is understood the defendant was handing out Gospel tracts to the public on the date in question.

The defendant is a son of the late Willie John McConnell, who once was given an MBE for his services to the railway industry but hit the headlines when he won the £3.8 million on the lottery in 1995.

The defendant was not present at Coleraine Magistrates Court on Friday which heard the charges are to be contested at a hearing in mid-April.

During a previous court appearance, the defendant had told a judge: “I honour you and I honour my saviour The Lord”.
