He has a very poor level of education. He comes from a very dysfunctional family background, said barrister, Brian McInerney, scraping the very bottom of the mitigation barrel. No doubt Mr McInerney retired to the court toilet and threw up in disgust after doing his utmost for his client, but such is the nature of advocacy.
Connors, you see, is a very special piece of shit.
This is a character who beat a 10-month-old baby for three solid weeks. He slapped the child, punched it, burned it and threw it against a wall, breaking its arms and causing brain damage.
A baby! This lowlife scumbag beat a baby mercilessly for three weeks.
Not only that, but when jailed, Connors told the Gardaí that the child’s mother better hope I get a life sentence for this.
The case is in the news because the Court of Criminal Appeal has increased the original sentence Connors received from three years to seven, with two suspended to provide some hope to the thug.
This is one of those cases where the convicted offender deserves no hope at all. This is a case where he deserves to go to jail knowing in full certainty that he will be abused violently, every day, no matter how much he begs for mercy.
What an absolute piece of shit.
