Woman caused over £1,500 worth of damage to cars in crime involving ‘hate element’

The district judge said: 'I don't know if she will be successful but she should look towards restitution in the next four weeks'

A woman who caused over £1,500 worth of damage to cars will have to wait until next month to be sentenced after her solicitor referred to the “hate element” involved.

The district judge stated that the 48-year-old “should look towards restitution in the next four weeks”.

Rosalind McKinley, of Victor Place, Dollingstown pleaded guilty to criminal damage at Craigavon Magistrates’ Court on Friday.

Defence barrister John McCann stated: “I would be seeking a report in this case given the high value and the hate element in the case.

“The damage was to cars and there are also some complex mental health issues.”

Prosecution outlined that the total cost of the damage was £1,546.44 and this had been estimated after an assessment.

District Judge Steven Keown stated: “I don’t know if she will be successful but she should look towards restitution in the next four weeks.”

The case was adjourned until February 21 for sentencing.
