Jamie Kavanagh - A clarification
ON 22 July on Independent.ie, we published an article on independent.ie with the following headline, “Boxer who dragged a bouncer across the street and punched him 17 times in the head escapes conviction”.
A picture of Mr Jamie Kavanagh accompanied the article.
The article accompanying the headline made it clear that while he was involved in the incident, Mr Jamie Kavanagh had not been involved in the greater violence and was therefore given the benefit of the Probation Offenders Act and was not convicted of an offence.
We are happy to clarify that at sentencing the Court heard that Mr. Kavanagh had not made physical contact with the bouncer in question during the incident.
