'Lies' replies Limerick man charged with sex assaults

Kilmallock Court

A COUNTY Limerick man aged in his thirties has been charged with three sexual assaults on an underage female at Kilmallock Court.

The court heard that after he was arrested and charged with the alleged offences he replied: “It never happened. Lies. She is being put up to it.”

Sergeant Michelle Leahy said the Director of Public Prosecutions has directed trial on indictment.

There was no objection to bail by the State but Sgt Leahy asked for two conditions - the accused most sign on at Bruff Garda Station three times a week between 9am and 9pm, and have no contact with the alleged injured party or any member of the family.

Tracey O’Brien, solicitor for the defendant, had no objection to the conditions.

Sgt Leahy asked for an adjournment until December for the book of evidence to be served. Judge Marian O’Leary set bail at his own bond of €300.

Sgt Leahy asked the judge to direct the media in attendance that the man cannot be named to protect the identity of the complainant.
