Judge unsure if New Mills man ‘appreciates seriousness of situation’

Hughes is charged with refusing arrest, failing to remain at the scene of an accident, failing to atop at an accident, failing to report an accident and failing to give appropriate information.Hughes addressed the court himself.However, Judge Paul Kelly, adjourning the matter to October 18, 2018 for hearing, advised Hughes to obtain legal advice.“I’m not sure you appreciate the seriousness of the situation that you’re in,” Judge Kelly said.“You would benefit from legal advice and I have told you this before.
