Man jailed for home break-in

A man has been jailed for three years for breaking into a woman's house and tying her up with a power cord.

Judge Carmel Stewart imposed a five year term and suspended the final two so Keogh can continue the progress he has made in custody.

Keogh of Glenaraneen, Brittas, Co Dublin pleaded guilty to burglary and false imprisonment at Holywell, Dundrum, on August 16, 2012. He has 46 previous convictions including five for burglary.
