Are you aware of how an income for legal aid is assessed ? thought notHe was sent forward to Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on two charges of false imprisonment of Ms Burton and of Karen O'Connell at Fortunestown Road, Jobstown on November 15th, 2014.
He's not in the High Court and therefore shouldn't be granted Legal Aid. His guilt or innocence is not the question because if he's found not guilty he'll be awarded costs.
Have you evidence of any of this?If Dennis O'Brien got granted FLA in a court case, my thinking is that the Paul Murphy brigade would have a few things to say about it.
Are you happy about your taxes going to pay the solicitors bill of someone earning nearly 90K?
I'm on a good degree less than that and my guess is that if I applied for it I'd (rightly) be told to f*ck off with myself
What's stranger is why he would choose a State appointed lawyer considering it's the State against whom he is competing.In the district court there is a limit based on what your income is however once it goes to the Higher court every one who applies gets legal aid.
