Court grounds boy already on curfew



A 15-YEAR-OLD boy has been grounded indefinitely by the Lismore Local Court. The youth appeared before the court yesterday after he was seen trying to get access to the Lismore RSL Club at 12.30am on Monday, in breach of a curfew. He was granted bail on the condition he not leave his Corndale house unless accompanied by his parents. It was the third time he had been granted bail since allegedly breaking into the freezer of a Lismore food store earlier this month. The police prosecutor did not oppose bail. The previous curfew had forbidden the boy to leave his house between 7pm and 6am. When he was seen by police early yesterday morning he fled into bushland. About 1pm, police contacted the boy's mother, who said the family had travelled into Lismore to search for the boy, without success, after he called and said he was in John Street and bleeding. The boy is due to appear before the court again on Thursday.
