Dubliner found guilty of raping his mother on Mother’s Day
Rapist awaits sentence after claiming sex was consensual
By PATRICK COUNIHAN,
A Dublin man is awaiting sentence after he was found guilty of raping his mother on Mother’s Day in a case described by the judge as ‘distasteful and sordid’.
The 45-year-old rapist had pleaded not guilty to the rape at Dublin’s Central Criminal Court.
He had told the court that the sex at his mother’s home in March 2008 was ‘consensual’.
The Irish Times reports that the jury of four men and eight women took just over four hours of deliberations over two days to return the guilty verdict.
