Ardoyne riots: Teenager faces custody over 12 July trouble
A teenager who admitted being involved in rioting at Ardoyne in Belfast on 12 July has been told there is a strong likelihood that he will face custody.
The 16-year-old boy, who appeared before Belfast Youth Court, cannot be named because of his age.
He was charged with riotous assembly, criminal damage and setting fire to a BMW car with intent to endanger life.
He was released on bail but ordered to stay away from Ardoyne shops and other parades and protests.
The court was told that he made full admissions to the police when officers arrested him on Tuesday.
Belfast Youth Court also heard that on the night of the rioting, the teenager's mother had thought he was with friends on Belfast's Antrim Road.
When she discovered he was in Ardoyne she went into the middle of the riot herself to bring him home.
The teenager is to be electronically tagged and must adhere to a curfew.
He is due to appear before the court again next month.
Meanwhile, a Lurgan man described by a prosecutin lawyer as one of the most serious offenders during the riots in the Ardoyne area has been refused bail in the High Court.
Pearce Toman, 25, from Drumnamoe Avenue, denies attempted grievous bodily harm, riotous assembly, possession of petrol bombs and throwing one of the devices.
His lawyer said the only time Mr Toman left his home in Lurgan on 12 July was to walk his dog.
The judge said he was refusing bail because it was a sensitive time in Northern Ireland and there were a number of other parades coming up.
