(From Irish Independent)
A JURY acquitted him of possessing child pornography but Judge Brian Curtin will limp away from the impeachment process with disability pension.
The former star of Tralee amateur dramatics also has a great actors sense of timing: he resigned yesterday on the first working day he was entitled to apply for a disability benefit.
A botched prosecution and then a full salary for more than four years have left many with a deep anger and frustration.
He finally resigned yesterday four years and five months after gardai raided his house, but that was just two days after he was eligible for a disability pension.
