About :

A married couple have been sentenced at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court over the female
genital mutilation (FGM) of their then 21-month-old daughter. A 37-year-old man and his 27-
year-old wife were jailed for five-and-a-half years and four years and nine months respectively. In November the couple pleaded not guilty to procuring an act of FGM on 16 September 2016, RTÉ reported. Their conviction was the first of its kind in the Republic of Ireland. The couple cannot be named to protect the identity of the child, who is now five. Sentencing the couple, Judge Elma Sheahan said the offence had resulted in serious harm to the child, who may suffer psychological or psycho-sexual effects in the future.
