22-month suspended prison sentence for Paul Sheehan following shooting incident involving former Minister Manwel Mallia’s car

In Court, Paul Sheehan was given a 22-month prison sentence suspended for three years after he was found guilty of firing towards a driver who hit Minister Manwel Mallia’s car in November 2014. At the time, Sheehan was a former constable and driver with Dr Mallia.

It emerged in court that Stephen Smith was drunk when he hit the minister’s car and drove off. Sheehan, who saw Smith run away, chased him with the car and fired two shots in his direction before the latter stopped.

Presiding Magistrate Rachel Montebello concluded that although Sheehan had the right to admonish Smith not to leave the incident’s site, he should not have used exaggerated force.
