Husband and wife not guilty of violent disorder
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.
