Sean McGrath – correction
Friday 25th October 2013, 7:59PM BST.
A Press Association report of the sentencing of drug dealers Roy Sawyers and Carlos Wilmot at Portsmouth Crown Court on Friday, October 11 wrongly stated that one of their victims, Sean McGrath, was bullied into working for them.
We would like to make clear that this was not the case. Mr McGrath, a student and housemate of the defendants’ other victim, Nathaniel Smith, was blamed by Sawyers for allowing the tenancy on their address to run out.
Mr McGrath was beaten by Sawyers, who also forced Mr Smith to cut his friend, Mr McGrath, with a knife.
