Tyrone man Maloney to stand trial on unlawful imprisonment charges
A Co Tyrone man has been returned for trial on charges relating to the alleged detention of a woman against her will.
Appearing at a preliminary enquiry yesterday was James Maloney (24), from Ballycullen Road, Dungannon, who faces two charges dating back to August 13, 2017. He is accused of unlawfully and injuriously imprisoning the woman, as well as assaulting her.
A prosecutor told Dungannon Magistrates Court there is a case to answer, which was agreed by District Judge John Meehan.
Maloney declined to call witnesses or give evidence on his own behalf. He confirmed he understood the charges and did not object to the proceedings.
Judge Meehan set bail at £200 and ordered Maloney to appear at Dungannon Crown Court for arraignment next month.
