A garda sergeant has been fined €2,000 after being convicted on two counts of sexually assaulting a young female colleague while on duty at a Dublin garda station in 2010.

Sgt Martin Woods was attached to Tallaght Garda Station.

Following an application by RTÉ in the Dublin District Court this morning, Judge Reilly said she was not making an order to prevent the naming of Garda Woods.

Passing sentence at Dublin District Court this morning, Judge Bridget Reilly said the offences for which she was imposing sentence today were at the lower end of the scale and did not justify a custodial sentence.
