A 46-year-old man was sent forward for trial to the Circuit Criminal Court when he appeared at Monaghan District Court on Monday on charges alleging the theft of sums of money from Monaghan Credit Union.
Columba Gorman, 34 Dr McKenna Terrace, Monaghan faces 28 counts alleging cash thefts from the Credit Union on dates between January 2005 and February 2010, contrary to Section 4 of the Criminal Justice (Theft and Fraud) Act.
Garda Inspector Pat McMorrow said that the total amount alleged to have been stolen was in the region of €37,000-€38,000.
Judge Sean MacBride formally sent the accused man forward for trial to the sittings of the Circuit Court in Monaghan Town on October 4, 2011 at 10.30, fixing bail in the accused’s own cash bond of €200.
Judge MacBride said that given the gravity of the offences and the accused’s financial circumstances he would grant him a certificate of free criminal legal aid and assign Mr Martin Cosgrove, solicitor, and one junior counsel to his defence.
