Judge picks a bone with cost of legal action in chicken roll case

July 2, 2021

A JUDGE has questioned the cost of a long-running case of a Letterkenny woman accused of stealing a chicken roll.

At this week’s sitting of Letterkenny District Court, Judge Alan Mitchell issued a bench warrant for Nelly Connors.

It is alleged that Connors (27) of Canal Road, Letterkenny stole a chicken roll from Simpson’s Supermarket, Circular Road, Letterkenny on June 27, 2017.

Connors failed to appear for Monday’s court sitting.

Judge Mitchell noted that Connors ‘isn’t engaging’ with the court on the matter.

Defence solicitor Mr Michael Shiel has been granted legal aid in the case.

Judge Mitchell questioned the cost of the legal action which was, he said, would be ‘multiple values of a chicken roll’.
