A man who took part in an unprovoked attack on a car clamper has been sentenced to prison

Dublin: Two men who attacked a man who came to clamp an illegally parked car have been sentenced to prison terms. Stephen McMullan (25), the main accused, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison, and his accomplice to one year. On February 21, 2019, Clamper was attacked while working in the Werburgh Street parking garage in Dublin.

Stephen McMullan (25) and his accomplice, who were in the car, threatened Clamper with a knife, threw chips at him, and then rammed his van a number of times, causing him to jump a fence to avoid being run over. Clamper suffered serious injuries to his shoulder, neck, and knee. He was also terrified mentally. Clamper’s lawyer testified in court that he was afraid to go to work and couldn’t sleep at night. The accused were identified from the CCTV footage and arrested.

The court heard McMullen, of Rowlagh Gardens, Clondalkin, had 93 previous convictions for road traffic offenses. His lawyer argued in court that McMullen was a drug user but not an aggressor. He also stated that he was willing to apologise to Clamper. But Judge Pauline Codd ruled that none of these arguments were sufficient to deny the crime.
