A Polish construction worker living in Sligo has been remanded for sentence later after he pleaded guilty at the Central Criminal Court to raping two local women last year.

Jacek Sliwinski (aged 26), married with an address at Ferndale, Sligo pleaded guilty to raping the women at named places on July 8 and October 1, 2006.

Ms Pauline Walley SC, prosecuting, and Mr Brendan Grehan SC, defending, said the guilty pleas to these two counts were agreed on the basis that all the evidence in relation to them and to two other rape counts involving other victims would be given at the sentence hearing.

Mr Justice Paul Carney declared Sliwinski to be registered as a sex offender pursuant to legislation.

He also directed the preparation of victim impact reports in relation to all four women and of a probation report on Sliwinski, whom he remanded in custody.
