“The main factor to be taken into account is whether the sentencing options open to the District Court would be adequate to deal with the alleged conduct complained of, having regard to all the circumstances of the case and in particular the seriousness of the offence,” he said, adding that “moral culpability” is also something that is taken into account. Presuming things are still the same in the DPP’s office, this means that the sentence for false imprisonment in the District Court, a fine of up to €1,500 and a prison term of 12 months, was deemed too lenient. Instead, protesters now face a maximum sentence of life in prison.
What a fucking joke. People who sat around a car for a couple of hours, surrounded by guards, are facing more than a e1500 fine and 12 months inside. Unless the DPP has fucked up.

TD Paul Murphy facing trial over alleged false imprisonment of Joan Burton.

ANTI-Austerity Alliance TD Paul Murphy is among a group of protesters facing trial for allegedly falsely imprisoning Tanaiste Joan Burton in her car during a demonstration in west Dublin.

Mr Murphy and 15 other people appeared in Dublin District Court after being summonsed over the incident last November.

Another two did not appear and had their cases adjourned in their absence.

Hundreds of people staged a protest in support of the accused outside the Criminal Courts of Justice before the proceedings began.

Mr Murphy (32), of The Copse, Woodpark, Ballinteer, is charged with false imprisonment of Ms Burton and her political advisor Karen O'Connell.

The incident is alleged to have happened at Fortunestown Road, Tallaght on November 15 last year.

State Solicitor Rachel Joyce said the DPP was directing trial on indictment in all cases and asked for an adjournment for the preparation of books of evidence.

Also charged with two counts of false imprisonment are South Dublin County Councillors Michael Murphy (51) of Whitechurch Way, Ballyboden and Ciaran Mahon (37) of Bolbrook Grove, Tallaght.

Other Tallaght defendants accused of false imprisonment are Michael Banks (44) of Brookview Green, Frank Donaghy (69) of Alpine Rise, Peter Herbert (63) of Rossfield Park; Glen Carney (20) of Cloonmore Park; Declan Kane (46), of Glenshane Green; Thomas Kelly (33) of Cushlawn Dale; Paul Kiernan (39) of Brookview Way; Adam Lyons (21) of Drumcairn Drive, Scott Masterson (31) of Carrigmore Drive; Keith Preston (35) of Sundale Lawns, Philip Preston (36) of Dromcarra Avenue; Carol Purcell (55) and Ken Purcell (49), both of Kiltalown Green.

Keith Preston, Mr Kiernan, Mr Kelly, Mr Carney, Mr Kane and Mr Herbert are also charged with violent disorder.

Mr Lyons is also charged with violent disorder and damaging a garda car.

Dylan Collins (20) of Bawnlea Green, Tallaght is accused of violent disorder and damaging a garda car.

Antoinette Kane (22) of Cloonmore Park, Tallaght is accused of violent disorder.

Meanwhile, at the same court sitting, United Left Alliance TD Joan Collins faced a public order charge arising from a protest against the installation of water meters in Harold's Cross.

She is accused of failing to comply with garda directions at Parnell Road on April 20 this year.

Also accused of that offence are Patrick Burke (50) of Dolphin House, Rialto; Gavin Byrne (42) of Temple Manor Way, Greenhills; Andrew Canning (55) of Clanbrassil Close, Clanbrassil Street; Patrick Dunne of St Gerard's Road, Greenhills; Aaron Healy (25) of Saul Road, Crumlin; Adele Kenny (39) of Monasterboice Road, Crumlin; Sofian Murphy (29) of Dolphin Road, Drimnagh, Oisin O Ra of Derravaragh Road, Terenure, John O'Reilly (62) of Leiglin Road, Crumlin and Patrick Waine (56) of St Malachy's Road, Walkinstown.

Ms Kenny and Mr Murphy are also accused of garda obstruction.

Judge Michael Walsh adjourned all these cases to a date later this month.

In fairness, where were they going holding the Minister like that? If a bunch of lads did that to a randomer, they'd be jailed.

They're lucky. In most other Western countries, they'd have been beaten up by riot police, if not worse.

Fair play to Joan though, stayed put knowing full well how this would play out now the water protest hubbub has calmed down.

Bit ridiculous tbh. Murphy is a clown, but pursuing this is making a martyr out of him IMO.

Paul Murphy at 32 years of age behaving like some student union agitator would really want to grow up.
