€995 dental costs in assault

A Monasterevin man was last week given a 12-month sentence, suspended for two years, after paying €950 compensation for assault.

Garda William Whelan said that John Porter had been “off the radar for a while”, when he was arrested on foot of a bench warrant at last week’s court. Porter had been convicted of assault at an earlier sitting, with €995 dental costs incurred by the injured party.
