Bouncer gets seven years for sex assault

A judge who sentenced a bouncer to seven years in jail for sexually assaulting a young woman strongly criticised a character witness statement by a parish priest who said the man had "always had the height of respect for women".

Fr Sean Sheehy, parish priest of Castlegregory, Co Kerry, told the Circuit Criminal Court in Tralee he had known Danny Foley (35) since he was a teenager and said there was "not an abusive bone in his body".
