    Default Stroke Fahey wins a retrial

    Newstalk have reported that on appeal the conviction of Michael 'Stroke' Fahey has been quashed by the Court of Criminal Appeal. A retrial has been ordered. This was on the basis of a prejudicial Memo put before the jury during the trial.

    EDIT - As johnfás says, Fianna Fail fraudster Stroke Fahey is LOOKING to have the conviction quashed and if unsuccessful will look to have the already lenient 12 month sentence for what is after all theft, reduced.

    Amazing how many Fianna Fail councillors are convicted of crimes and misdemeanours yet the party escapes untarnished, one of their councillors even stepped down recently because of paedophelia porn charges but they manage somehow to keep this off the front pages. Not something that the clown Paul Williams is interested in of course, he wouldn't ruffle the feathers of the stronger parties.

    That's not what I heard on Newstalk!!

    The report was that the Fianna Fail fraudster Stroke Fahey is LOOKING to have the conviction quashed and if unsuccessful will look to have the already lenient 12 month sentence for what is after all theft, reduced.

    Amazing how many Fianna Fail councillors are convicted of crimes and misdemeanours yet the party escapes untarnished, one of their councillors even stepped down recently because of paedophelia porn charges but they manage somehow to keep this off the front pages.

    Everyone is entitled to a fair trial and at this present moment in time he is innocent as he didn't get a fair trial.

    Apparrently there was evidence presented which was "prejudicial" concerning a conversation, and the defence were not advised this would be produced. They are not arguing the validity of the evidence but that it shoudl not have been admitted.

    They are also aruging that the reference to the Stroke Fahy as the "Stroke" in Stroke Fahy could also have prejudiced the trial!!....************************in' comical given his wearing of the moniker with pride and that Fianna Fail could be called the Fianna the Stroke Fail given the general nature of their dealings.

    When he does go back, he should serve the entire remainder of his sentence, before of course, beeing accpeted back in to the Fianna Stroke Fail fold as with Cooper Flynn.

    Fianna Fail would have to hire a very tall cherry picker to even touch the lowest level of moral high ground given the above, drink driver McDaid, Beverley Cooper Flynn encouraging tax evasion, supporters of early release for paedophiles, paedophile councillors and the grassroots support for Ahern denying that he is capable of any wrong in the face of totally misleading, contradictory and incontrovertible lies told to the Mahon Tribunal. Your party is a bed of corruption incompetence and deceit and an international disgrace.

    Thought they went a bit easy on him last time, hope the Judge gives him another 12 months and a whacking great bill for all the costs.

    I'd like to see someone in Galway council table a motion asking him to resume his duties as prison inspector.

    Wonderful comment, am sure the lads in Limerick Prison have missed him and look forward to conveying their grievances to him at their place.
    Surely GCC cannot allow him back in now as he has been absent for too long.
