Waterfront: Man guilty of assault that left victim with broken skull
A MAN accused of a late night attack in the town’s Waterfront area which left a man with a fractured skull has been found guilty of assault.
Michael Hussey, 22, had denied causing grievous bodily harm with intent to his victim on October 14 last year. He was found not guilty by a jury of this charge but guilty of a less serious offence of assaulting his victim causing him actual bodily harm.
Sentence was adjourned until next Wednesday for a pre-sentence report to be prepared on Hussey, of Middlesex.
Adjourning sentence Judge John Devaux warned Hussey that all sentencing options would be open to the court when he returned next week.
During the trial the court heard that the victim and a friend had been walking home from Cardinal Park at around 3am when they became aware of a man shouting abuse at them.
