New Sentence Hearing For Ex-SF Cllr. & His Father May Be Required.

: 05/19/2017 - 12:06

A news sentence hearing may be required in the case of a former Sinn Féin Councillor who falsely imprisoned and threatened to kill a convicted fraudster

Jonathan Dowdall interrogated and tortured his victim by water-boarding him at his house on the Navan Road in January 2015.

His 60-year-old father Patrick also pleaded guilty to the same charges.

Both men were due to be sentenced this morning but Jonathan Dowdall’s barrister challenged a number of facts presented at a previous hearing.

The Special Criminal Court will hear submissions on whether there should be another sentence hearing when it reconvenes later this month.
