Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person

Law and Practice

By Eamonn O'Moore

According to Garda Recorded Crime Statistics, non-fatal offences account for over eleven percent of all reported crime in Ireland, with some 16,500 reported incidents in 2016 alone. Non-Fatal Offences Against the Person: Law and Practice is the first dedicated book on this subject in Ireland. It provides an in-depth analysis to the laws relating to non-fatal offences in Ireland, with detailed expert annotations of the Non-Fatal Offences against the Person Act 1997, the principal legislation governing the law in this area. The author also considers the various offences created by the Act, including an in-depth analysis of the relevant case-law, necessary proofs and possible defence options. This work is fully updated and consolidates all changes and amendments made over the past two decades since the enactment of the 1997 Act. It will be an essential resource for all lawyers dealing with offences under the Non-Fatal Offences against the Person Act 1997. [Subject: Irish Law, Criminal Law]
