An Armagh teenager who assaulted six police officers and was disorderly at Craigavon Area Hospital must wait until the New Year to learn his fate.

Prosecution informed the court that the 19-year-old had 138 previous convictions, all of which occurred in the last six years.

Michael Mynes, of Linenhall Street, had pleas of guilty entered on his behalf to six counts of assault on police, two counts of disorderly behaviour and two counts of criminal damage at Newry Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday.

None of the facts in the case were heard, however, the particulars outline that all of the offences occurred on October 24, of this year.

The disorderly behaviour occurred on the Derrymore Road in Bessbrook and Craigavon Area Hospital, with the criminal damage charges relating to a PSNI cell van.

Defence barrister Seamus Lannon spoke only to comment that given the record and the offence in a hospital setting a pre-sentence report may be required.

Deputy District Judge Peter Prenter agreed, adjourning the case until January 6 for sentencing.
