Man sentenced for attack with brush

a man who struck a fellow inmate with a sweeping brush in a Dublin Prison has been sentenced to six months.

Stephen Seery (34), of Ballyogan Vale, Carrickmines in Dublin 18, was caught on CCTV striking prisoner Noel Murray several times with the brush after Murray ran out of his cell on January 21, 2013 in Wheatfield Prison following an alleged assault by other inmates. Seery, who has 46 previous convictions and had been out of prison since last December, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to violent disorder.
