Nine Years Jail For Assault, Imprisonment & Hijacking

Two Co. Tipperary men were before Clonmel Circuit Court yesterday and received their sentence, following the assault and imprisonment of a man during a car hijacking incident.

The original incident, which occurred on July 7th of last year (2016) saw a vehicle unlawfully stolen in Clonmel, south Tipperary, and later found burnt out in Tipperary Town. It was during this incident that a male victim was also falsely imprisoned; during which time he was also assaulted.

The charges against both individuals; named as Mr Adam Brady aged 23 years, with an address at Glenoaks Close, Clonmel, Co. Tipperary and Mr Ryan Tate aged 19 years, with an address at An Duiche, Scallagheen, Tipperary Town, Co. Tipperary, included assault causing harm, robbery, the unlawful seizure of a vehicle, false imprisonment and arson.

Judge Mr Tomas Teehan, presiding, sentenced both men connected with the crime, to a total jail term of 24 years, or 12 years each, with the final 3 suspended.

Yesterday’s successful court appearance and prosecutions followed on from investigations carried out jointly by members of an Garda Síochána from both Clonmel and Tipperary Town stations.
