Cavan solicitor pleads guilty to supplying phone to jailed rapist

A Cavan solicitor has pleaded guilty to supplying a mobile phone to a man jailed for rape.

Joanne Kangley, from Rathevan, Bailieborough, Co Cavan, pleaded guilty in Portlaoise Circuit Court.

The 41-year-old passed the phone to convicted rapist Michael Murray in the Midland Regional Hospital in Portlaoise in November 2014.

The 47-year-old, formerly of Killiney Oaks, Killiney, Dublin, is serving 19 years in prison for the rape of a woman in Dublin in 2010.

Ms Kangley will be sentence in April after pleading guilty in court yesterday.
