A judge told a woman her solicitor Fergus McIntosh should perhaps be on her Christmas Card list this year.
District Judge Peter King was speaking at Coleraine Magistrates Court on December 2 to Natasha Murray who had charges withdrawn for a caution after Mr McIntosh had previously asked if prosecutors could deal with the case by 'diversionary means'.
She had been charged with being disorderly in the Diamond area of Portstewart; resisting a police officer in the execution of his duty and possessing the Class A drug Ecstasy on May 26 this year.
When the charges were withdrawn against the defendant - aged 18 and with an address listed as Coleraine Road in Portstewart - Judge King told her: "I think you owe Mr McIntosh a Christmas Card this year".
