Now an adult, the State did not contest the appeal.

Will or should there be consequences for any of the parties involved in a child being falsely found guilty?

The judge in the original trial had to work with the evidence presented, at the time, and facilitated the child in never having a formal conviction (a decent thing to do)
Who paid all that money for all those lawyers, garda and court time?

A reminder of the need to depoliticise AGS

And again - the establishment continue a vendetta attempting to criminalise the Jobstown protest.

Despite the fact that all the defendants were either acquitted or had the charges dropped against them - the report that this boy had his conviction overturned - RTE include this in their report
One remaining man pleaded guilty to criminal damage to a garda car and will be sentenced next year.
knowing full well that this incident did not happen during the anti-water charges protest in Jobstown, the individual involved was not at the protest, the incident occurred hours after the protest ended and was related to a completely different Garda operation involving the serving of a warrant.

But as usual - don't let the truth get in the way of criminalising protest.

Parents should not bring or encourage their children to attend protest marches or to engage in anti-social behaviour.

Justice has prevailed, the Judgment has been made. That is the end of the matter.

Do you think innocent tax payers should fund it?
Never mind the child who is obviously not earning, funding a well off TD who earns almost 90k a year is what bothers me.

The type of make it up as you go along approach the guards took in these cases is exactly why you as a tax payer are getting screwed.

And it ain't in the court in jobstown that you pay

In short: no.

I presume by this you mean the state is the parent and AGS is the child
