A FORMER Inishowen Garda has been found guilty of sexual assault against a female Garda colleague.
Garda Kevin Corby (33) has also been found guilty of harassing his former colleague and another female officer.
A jury of ten men and two women at Letterkenny Circuit Court this evening took around four hours to find Garda Corby guilty of the three charges.
Garda Corby embraced his wife, who had been present with him throughout the trial, following the verdict while the husband of one of the victims broke down in tears.
He was cleared of five other charges of sexual assault while a sixth charge was earlier dismissed by Judge John O’Hagan following a defence motion.
Garda Corby, a married man originally from Leitrim, had denied all nine charges against him.
He is due to be sentenced in January and was released on continuing bail.
