Man was ‘unaware’ of court date and instead was at a wedding

ColeraineCourt7 - Edited

A Coleraine man who has admitted assaulting four police officers was, according to his barrister, unaware he was due to appear at Coleraine Magistrates Court on August 20, and instead was attending a wedding.

Anthony Sharkey (23), of Willow Drive, committed the offences on June 30 this year.
The case was adjourned and Deputy District Judge Brian Archer said if the defendant did not appear on the new date an arrest warrant would be issued.
