Man jailed for eight and a half years for the sexual abuse of a four-year-old girl

A 59-year-old man has been jailed for the sexual abuse of a four-year-old that his partner was babysitting.

This case saw one of the youngest complainants ever giving evidence at a criminal trial in the country.

He was convicted in January of two charges of sexually assaulting the girl at his home in Dublin between July 2016 and July 2017.

The man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of the girl, does not accept the judge’s verdicts and continues to maintain his innocence.
