Mother of Dublin youth charged with false imprisonment lay screaming on courtroom floor

TWO youths have been charged with false imprisonment of a teenage girl in Dublin.

The pair, both aged 17, were arrested following the alleged incident in north Co Dublin last Thursday.

The two teens, who cannot be named, faced their second hearing yesterday when they appeared before Judge John O'Connor at Dublin Children's Court.

However, the judge was forced to call a recess when one of their mothers began screaming and threw herself on to the floor.

The court heard the girl now wants to withdraw her complaint.

However, the DPP wants the case to proceed.

Neither youth has indicated how he will plead and the venue for their trial has not yet been decided.
