Limerick teen to be sentenced for rape of sister

A Limerick teenager who sexually abused his younger step sister while babysitting her will be sentenced next month.

The 19-year-old man - who can't be identified to protect the girl's identity - pleaded guilty at the Central Criminal Court to two counts of oral rape and five counts of sexual assault on dates between February 2011 and January 2012 at locations in Limerick and Clare.

The accused man was 16 years old and the girl was seven when the abuse occurred.

He has no previous convictions.

Mr Justice Paul Carney remanded the accused in continuing custody until December to allow for further assessment from The Probation Service and an updated report from them.
