Armagh Courthouse

A Portadown man who pleaded guilty to three charges of assaulting police will have to wait until later this month to learn his fate.

Court heard that the 27-year-old had just completed a six-month sentence for similar offences.

Jason Jaswal, of Summer Island Road, pleaded guilty to common assault, disorderly behaviour, criminal damage and three counts of assault on police at Armagh Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday.

These offences were accrued over three separate incidents – two from earlier this year and the third dating back to last summer.

Defence barrister Patrick Taggart stated that the defendant had just finished a six-month sentence for similar offences.

District Judge Paul Copeland said: “This was an intense period of offending and he has spent a reasonable time in custody.

“Given his record and the seriousness of the offences, a report will be required to evaluate options for sentencing.”

Jaswal was remanded in custody to reappear on August 20 for sentencing.
