Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

A HUS­BAND and wife have been found not guilty of vi­o­lent dis­or­der by unan­i­mous ver­dict of a jury of eight men and four women.

James Sin­nott and Tonya O’Brien, both of Spar­rowsland, Bree, En­nis­cor­thy, pleaded not guilty at Wex­ford Cir­cuit Crim­i­nal Court to a num­ber of charges.

Sin­nott pleaded not guilty to driv­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle at Rose­mount, Dri­nagh, Wex­ford, on Au­gust 16, 2015, in a man­ner that cre­ated dan­ger to Billy, Ger and Paddy Con­nors. He also pleaded not guilty to vi­o­lent dis­or­der on the same oc­ca­sion, and with pos­ses­sion of a weapon dur­ing the course of a dis­pute, that was ca­pa­ble of in­flict­ing se­ri­ous in­jury.

Tonya O’Brien pleaded not guilty to vi­o­lent dis­or­der, and with pos­ses­sion of a weapon – a golf club – that was likely to in­tim­i­date an­other and was ca­pa­ble of in­flict­ing se­ri­ous in­jury.

The charges re­lated to an in­ci­dent that took place at the fam­ily home of the Con­nors of Rose­mount, Dri­nagh, in­volv­ing the sale of a car.

Fol­low­ing de­lib­er­a­tions of 28 min­utes, the jury re­turned at unan­i­mous ver­dict of not guilty on all counts.
