Rural Aggravated Burglary Charge – Criminals Sentenced To 14 & 17 Years

Three men have received long jail sentences by Mr Justice John Hannan, for their part in two aggravated burglaries in which three pensioners were tied up, stabbed and beaten in Co. Limerick.  During a further separate robbery, another family were tied up in their home. The two incidents occurred in April and May of 2012 in Pallasgreen, Co Limerick.

Two of the accused; Mr Patrick Roche aged 53 with an address at Kilcronan Close, Clondalkin Co. Dublin, and his son Mr Philip Roche aged 24-year, were today both jailed for 17 years and 15 years respectively.

The son-in-law of above named Mr Patrick Roche; 37-year-old Mr Alan Freeman, with an address at No.73, Pearse Park, Tipperary town, Co. Tipperary was jailed for 14 years. The final three years of each of the accused men’s sentences were suspended.

Following Mr John Hannan’s sentencing, victims complimented the Judge’s decision and declared their complete satisfaction with the long jail terms handed down.

    They won’t suffer as much as the three pensioners who were tied up, stabbed and beaten in Co. Limerick. They should also get the cat and 9 tails once a week.
