Case ad­journed for psychological re­port

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A 49-YEAR-OLD Wex­ford town man who pleaded guilty to as­sault has had sen­tenc­ing ad­journed as a psychological re­port is be­ing pre­pared.

Philip Fo­ley, of 9 Lower John St., Wex­ford, came be­fore Judge Cor­mac Quinn at a sit­ting of Wex­ford Cir­cuit Crim­i­nal Court.

He pleaded guilty to as­sault­ing Barry Smith on Au­gust 18, 2017, at the River­side Park Ho­tel in En­nis­cor­thy.

De­fence Coun­sel, Jor­dan Fletcher, asked for an ad­journ­ment to al­low for the prepa­ra­tion of a Pro­ba­tion and Wel­fare re­port. He also asked for a psychological re­port, adding that a psy­chi­atric re­port had al­ready been pro­vided.

Judge Quinn said he did not want to bur­den the State with the cost of a psychological re­port when a psy­chi­atric re­port is al­ready avail­able.

Given the back­ground, Pros­e­cut­ing Coun­sel, Sinead Glee­son, said a psychological re­port would be of ben­e­fit to the court.

Grant­ing the ap­pli­ca­tion for the re­port, Judge Quinn said he would ad­journ the mat­ter to Jan­uary 11.
