Ex-surgeon jailed for sex assaults on children
A retired surgeon has been jailed for a year and eight months for sexually assaulting two teenage boys in the 1970s.
Michael Shine, 85, faced eight charges of indecently assaulting six patients at Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital and at his private clinic, both in Drogheda, Co Louth, between 1964 and 1991.
Last month he was convicted of three charges of assault on two teenage boys at Dublin circuit criminal court. He had denied all the allegations.
Note: Shine also owns a holiday home in Tipperary
