Child killer back in court

An evil Ulster child-killer, who had his release on licence revoked in April, has been handed yet another jail sentence.

An evil Ulster child-killer, who had his release on licence revoked in April, has been handed yet another jail sentence.

Glenn Haggan, of Sunningdale in Lurgan, was last week given a two-month jail term for disorderly conduct last September.

Haggan is already in custody after it was discovered he breached the terms of his release from prison under the Good Friday Agreement.

The 29-year-old loyalist was freed after serving four years for his part in the horrific killing of Gavin Malcolm (15) in April 1994.

Haggan was part of a four-man gang which savagely attacked Gavin, beating him about the head and fracturing his skull.

They then took him to a block of flats where they pushed him from a window to his death.

Haggan appeared in court in January and was sentenced to six months after pleading guilty to driving while disqualified.

Then in April, he was rearrested and had his licence revoked for a catalogue of public order incidents.

He was given two months for disorderly behaviour last Thursday.

Resident Magistrate Alan White agreed with Haggan's solicitor that the incident was at the "lower end" of the scale.
