WTS 146 - Jay Lester

May 26, 2018

This week we welcomed Jay Lester to the podcast. Jay was aged just 15 when he took part in demonstration oppoising the introduction of water charges in November 2014 and later ended up arrested, questioned and put on trial. He was then convicted of falsely imprissoning then Tainaiste, Joan Burton, the only conviction handed out from that protest. 

Jay spent 3 years clearing his name and in December 2017 his appeal was successful and the conviction overturned.
