Teen Charged With Lighting Flare Inside Wal-Mart Due In Court
The case of a 17-year-old Northside boy charged with setting off a flare inside the North Sydney Wal-Mart is due back in court today.
The boy has pleaded guilty to the charges of mischief over $5,000, being a common nuisance by discharging a flare and two counts of breaching court orders.

The defence wants the teen to be referred to the restorative justice program while the Crown is opposing the move.
