A Derry man who is already serving a prison sentence was jailed again today at the local Magistrates Court. Mark Howie (43) whose address was given as c/o Maghaberry Prison admitted two charges of criminal damage to a police vehicle and assault on police on February 7 last year. The court heard that police had occasion to arrest Howie and once he was placed in the police vehicle he lashed out at officers. He also spat at officers and spat on the seat of the vehicle requiring a cleaning of the vehicle. Defence barrister Stephen Mooney said his client had pleaded guilty. He said the defendant was sentenced to six and a half years last week. District Judge Barney McElholm sentenced Howie to four months to start from today's date.
