(A) Lets look at Paul Begley , he was involved in a very high profile case last year which resulted in him being convicted and sentenced to 6yrs in prison for defrauding the state of some e1.4million in taxes in garlic being imported as apples scam. No lets not kid ourselves here this actually was a crime and there are plenty of others involved in costing the country far more who should before a judge too. Sadly they are not but this does not excuse or lessen the severity of Mr Begley's crime. But the thing to remember here is he got 6yrs for pulling a scam on the taxman.
And he got 6 years even though he paid back the money due plus interest and penalty charges - which more than doubled what he originally scammed the revenue for.

Wallace did not pay a cent back.

We need a Tahrir Square here.

Buinessman avoids jail for sex assault in B&B


Tuesday, April 29, 2014

By Anne Lucey
A businessman who dragged a teenager into a spare bedroom of a Killarney B&B in the middle of the night and sexually assaulted her has been given a suspended sentence at the Circuit Criminal Court in Tralee.

The man had earlier pleaded guilty to the single count of sexual assault on August 14, 2011.

The now 22-year-old woman, still traumatised by the events, wept openly as the suspended sentence was handed down. She was comforted by her mother.

The sentencing hearing yesterday was told how the accused man, Martin Quigley, now aged 48, of Ballygarron, Kilmuckridge, Co Wexford, had arrived in the Kerry tourist town in connection with business and had spent the day drinking in a bar attached to a hotel. The injured party had been out on a day excursion to view the scenery and had returned to the B&B, where the accused asked her to join him in bed.

“When she refused to do so, he started to drag her into the spare room, but she got away,” Judge Carroll Moran read from his notes of evidence given by Det Garda Chris Manton.

The woman changed into her pyjamas and the man tried a second time and this time he dragged her into a bedroom and forced her onto a bed. He touched her vagina and breasts, outside her clothes, but she succeeded in getting away and alerted four men outside the B&B. They called a taxi and gardaí were also alerted. Garda scenes-of-crime examiners found drag marks across the floor of the B&B sitting room consistent with the young woman’s complaint.

The man had 12 previous convictions, including two for assault and one for burglary, but none for sexual assault, Judge Moran said. “The balance of his convictions appear to indicate he has a drink problem and he accepts this,” added the judge.

However, Judge Moran said the accused’s actions were “completely unacceptable” and had “a hugely traumatic effect” on the woman, adding she was entitled to be in the B&B without interference.

However, while there was a degree of violence involved, all of the touching was outside her clothes, he said.

Judge Moran said he took into account the early admission by the man and the guilty plea to the sex assault charge which secured the conviction and spared the victim from going through a trial. He had also had adverse publicity which had an adverse effect on him and on his business. Judge Moran gave Quigley two years, suspended for two years on condition he does not commit any type of offence.

Quigley was also placed on the sex offender’s registrar for a period of five years.

Clíona Saidléar of Rape Crisis Network Ireland said she was disappointed that at least a portion of the sentence was not activated.

“This is a crime, a criminal offence, and we would expect to see a punishment that fits the crime,” said Ms Saidléar. “That is important for the survivor and also for the message it sends out that this is a very serious crime.”

I wonder how judge Morgan would feel if that guy goes off now and sexually assaults one of his own relatives.

Another reason to have no faith in the Irish justice system

I actually think 2 years is reasonable. It shouldn't have been suspended though imo.

I wonder if the DPP will appeal it.

A convicted child abuser has been given a four-year jail sentence for sexually assaulting two teenage girls on the Luas while en route to a Rihanna concert.

John Daly from Cabra Park, Phibsboro in Dublin had pleaded guilty to two charges of sexually assaulting the girls aged 13 and 16 in October 2011.

Two years of the four-year sentence were suspended.
The 53-year-old had previously pleaded guilty to attempted rape and indecent assault charges relating to two young girls in the 1980s and to aggravated sexual assault and sexual assault on a 62-year-old woman on dates from 1997 to 1998.

Today, Daly was sentenced for assaulting the two Limerick girls who had been driven to Dublin by one of their fathers for the concert.

He put them on the Luas at Heuston Station because of heavy traffic.

The two girls got separated on the busy tram.

John Daly approached the 16-year-old and molested her by putting his hand between her legs over her clothing.

The teenager later told gardaí she felt she had no way out because she was squashed against a bar and did not know how to deal with the situation.

The court heard today that she was shocked and frozen and because of the shock she was unable to do anything.

Daly then placed his hand on the 13-year-old's backside area for some time after she bumped into him and apologised for standing on his toe.

She said she moved out of his way at her first opportunity to do so.

Both girls gave a good description of Daly to the girl's father when they met him on the platform when they got off the Luas.

Daly became a suspect after gardaí viewed CCTV footage.

He was arrested three months later as he was about to board a Luas at the 02 following a One Direction concert.

During a garda interview he admitted he had got on the Luas heading for the Rihanna concert in order to touch young girls.

He said he wanted to apologise to the girls for what had happened.

The suspension is the problem here. A 5 year suspended sentence would not have been much better. The fact is that he does no time.

Here is one of his previous cases: http://www.independent.ie/regionals/...-27193863.html

He was shot another time by his nephew after he caused a serious ruckus in a pub.

A lovely man.

Great work, Carroll (for believe it or not that is the judge in question's forename). We are safe in the knowledge that if this was a way worse crime and the criminal history was even worse again, violent deviant sex offenders like Quigley might have to serve some time behind bars.

Really? Even considering he had 12 previous conviction 2 of which were for assault? I think 2 years is very soft for that, drink problem is no excuse.
