Corby given 240 hours community service in lieu of jail sentence
A FORMER Inishowen based Garda who sexually assaulted a fellow female officer and harassed another at a local Garda station has been given a six month jail sentence and fined a total of €10,000.
Garda Kevin Corby showed no emotion as Judge John O’Hagan handed him a six month jail sentence, which was substituted for 240 hours of community service and a €10,000 fine on Monday afternoon. Corby, a married father-of-three, was supported and hugged by his wife throughout the court case and sentencing.
However, one of his victims choked back tears as she sat alongside Corby’s other victim in Letterkenny Circuit Court.
Corby, who has an address of 1 Steepleview, Lisnarea, Convoy, was found guilty by a jury of ten men and two women following a trial last year where the Garda stood accused of sexually assaulting and harassing two former female colleagues.
