A PENSIONER will be sentenced in July after he admitted sexually assaulting two men in Limerick on numerous occasions.

The six offences took place on the outskirts of the city last year. The man, who lives in Limerick city, is not being named at this stage to protect the identities of the victims.

Four of the charges relate to the sexual assault of one person and the two other charges relate to the second victim.

The offences were committed at a location in Limerick on unknown dates between October 1 and November 7 last year.

Judge Carroll Moran granted an application to have the man’s name added to the Sexual Offenders Register.

Andrew Sexton SC said the 77-year-old has been engaging for some time with the probation services and that detailed reports are being prepared for the court.

Judge Moran remanded the defendant in custody for a sentencing hearing on July 26.
