Gardaí convicted in Waterford trial

Two Gardaí have been convicted at Waterford Circuit Court in connection with an assault in the city last year.

A jury of five men and seven women found Garda Daniel Hickey guilty of assault causing harm to Anthony Holness on New Street in January 2010.

Garda John Burke was also found guilty of attempting to pervert the course of justice.

It was alleged that he deliberately moved a CCTV camera away from New Street as officers attempted to arrest Mr Holness.

Sergeant Alan Kissane was found not guilty of assault causing harm.

The jury is still deliberating in the case of Sergeant Martha McEnerney who is also accused of assault.

All four had denied the charges.
