The Crimonal Courts of Justice, Parkgate Street, Dublin.
Anti-Austerity Alliance TD Paul Murphy and two AAA councillors have been sent forward for trial by a jury at the Circuit Criminal Court, accused of false imprisonment of Tánaiste Joan Burton during a protest against water charges in Jobstown in Tallaght just over a year ago.
State solicitor Rachel Joyce said the DPP directed “trial on indictment” meaning the case will go before a judge and jury in the circuit court which can impose lengthier sentences.
Solicitor Michael Finucane, applying for legal aid, told the court that one of his clients who is charged with false imprisonment could “get life potentially”.
..they will face their next hearing on January 22.
