Man jailed for having sex with 16-year-old boy he met on Tinder

Shane Chubb (24) has been jailed for one year after pleading guilty to having sex with a 16-year-old boy that he met on Tinder when he was 21.

Chubb pleaded guilty to engaging in sexual intercourse with a child under the age of 17 between the 13th and 15th of April. As well as this, he pleaded guilty to one count of assaulting the 16-year-old at Chubb’s house.

The boy told his sister about what had happened and went to the gardaí a couple of days after the incident.

The court heard that the boy was not in court for the sentence hearing and did not wish to make a victim impact statement.
