A young man accused of assaulting four gardaí, threatening to kill two other men and carrying out several burglary-related offences in the Wilton area will be pleading guilty to the charges and sentenced on Friday.

Emmet Boyle, barrister, for Warren McGrath indicated today at Cork Circuit Criminal Court that McGrath was pleading guilty to all 12 charges against him.

Judge Seán Ó Donnabháin said that rather than taking the pleas of guilty today and adjourning sentencing until Friday, both the arraignment and sentencing could be done on Friday.

23-year-old McGrath was remanded in custody until that date at Cork Circuit Criminal Court.

Warren McGrath of 13 Curraheen Lawn, Bishopstown, Cork, faces a dozen charges.

The 23-year-old is charged with assaulting Sergeant Brendan Barry Murphy at Togher garda station, on November 14 2019.

McGrath is also charged with assaulting Detective Garda David Hickey, Garda Tim O’Leary and Garda Mark O’Donovan.

He is also charged with threatening to kill a man at The Rise Bishopstown on November 14, and threatening to kill another man at Halldene gardens.

In the twelve-count indictment he also faces charges of trespass for theft or attempted theft all relate to November 13/14 last at Bishopstown addresses including Haldene Gardens, Halldene Way, Halldene Villas and Pampas Grove at The Rise. 

He is also charged with driving a stolen car at The Rise on the same date.
