Convicted Rapist Who Made Bomb Threat To Justice Minister Sentenced To Two More Years In Prison

He done so from the Midlands Prison in 2021.

A convicted rapist who made a hoax bomb threat to the home of the Minister for Justice will spend an additional two years in prison.

Michael Murray, with an address at Seafield Road, Killiney, Dublin, refuses to accept the jury's verdict and is already planning to appeal his conviction.

From his cell in the Midlands Prison in 2021, Michael Murray rang the Samaritans to give what turned out to be a hoax bomb threat to Minister Helen McEntee’s home.

A jury convicted him earlier this month and he was handed a two-year prison sentence for it today.

He’s already serving a 19-year sentence for rape. Once that expires in May, he’ll begin a 16-year sentence for harassing his victim and making death threats.

Once that sentence is up, he’ll then begin the 2-year sentence he received for the hoax bomb threat.

Murray, who maintains he didn’t make the call, has already indicated his intention to appeal.
