A Limerick man who intervened to stop a woman being hassled and then viciously raped her over two hours will be sentenced later this week.
Timmy Tobin (aged 29) laughed when the woman offered to give him everything she had and responded that if she gave him oral sex he would not rape her.
The next day he handed himself into gardaí and admitted everything. He said he had raped her because she rejected his advances and he felt “let down and insulted”.
Tobin from Hogan Avenue, Likely, pleaded guilty at the Central Criminal Court to four counts of rape and anal rape against the woman, a foreign national, on August 14, 2009 in a wooded area in Limerick City.
He has six previous conviction including a seven year sentence for aggravated burglary and a five year sentence for a serious assault.
