Dubliner found guilty of raping his mother on Mother’s Day
Rapist awaits sentence after claiming sex was consensual
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.
Justice Barry White excused them from jury service for life after telling them: “It is not often a jury has to deal with a trial as distasteful and sordid as this.”
The justice remanded the man in custody for sentencing on October 1st. He also ordered that the rapist be registered as a sex offender and a victim impact report be made available to the court.
The report states that, in evidence, the court heard the accused admitted having sex with his mother but said it was consensual and that one thing had ‘led to another’.
His 65-year-old mother, who lives alone, was awaiting surgery and was on medication including an opiate painkiller, sleeping tablets and benzodiazepine.
