A Tullamore youth who spent just one day in a residential alcohol treatment centre has been given a chance to prove he can behave.
The case of Darren Murphy (18) of 265 Arden View was adjourned to September 9 for him to show he can stay out of trouble.
He was supposed to undergo treatment to deal with his alochol issues.
He is charged with public order offences, taking a car, driving without insurance, causing criminal damage and entering a premises to commit an offence.
The charges date back to August of last year and Judge Staines said he has to deal with his problems.
