Cork Circuit Criminal Court yesterday [Thursday] sentenced a local farmer to one year in jail for conspiring to introduce a BSE-infected cow into a herd of healthy animals in order to claim compensation. Bryan Wilson of Dunmanway, County Cork, was a farmer facing hard times as beef demand fell and the export market disappeared following the outbreak of BSE. The Court heard that his son, Andrew Wilson of Bandon, County Cork, was also involved in the fraud. Andrew Wilson received a suspended sentence.
