A foreign national living in Ireland who believed that it was somehow ‘okay under Irish law’ to sexually assault his step-daughter for years and years has been sentenced to just 12 years in jail.

The pedophile, whose identity hasn’t been disclosed publicly, is a 42-year-old non-native English speaker. Last month, the man was found guilty of an astounding 17 sex crimes against his step-daughter. Earlier this week on Monday, the Irish judge sentenced him to a measly 12 years in prison for committing the heinous crimes against the child during the time she was between 11 and 15-years-old.

Apparently, the crimes occurred in the family’s home while the girl’s mother was out working.

According to a report carried out by the Irish Independent at the time of the pedophile’s conviction, the reprehensible assaults began with oral rape in 2011 and later escalated to rape ‘on a highly regular basis,’ a local police officer told the case’s prosecuting attorney Vincent Heneghan SC.

The sexual abuse continued all the way up until 2017 when the girl finally gathered the courage to tell her family members what had been happening to her. A complaint with the local police was subsequently filed.

Upon being arrested and charged, the pedophile abuser initially claimed that he had believed that it was ‘okay under Irish law’ to rape the child. The man later conceded to Irish authorities that it’s not. In January of last year, the 42-year-old migrant man pleaded guilty to three separate counts of defilement of a child under the age of 17 between March and June 2017.

However, during the trial, the man denied the following counts: three counts of defiling the same girl between 2011 and 2017, one count of oral rape, 12 counts of rape, and another count of sexually exploiting the girl when he invited her to have sexual intercourse with him for 200 euros.

Despite his denial, jurors at the Central Criminal Court came back with guilty verdicts for each one of the charges. Following the guilty verdicts, the defendant’s lawyer, Damien Colgan SC, stated that his client didn’t accept the verdict and cited that the migrant had no prior convictions and had an adequate work history.

According to the Irish Times, the judge overseeing the case, Mr. Justice Michael White, stated that offenses had been a ‘serious violation of a child’ which involved an extremely serious breach of trust since the man had occupied a position of authority.

The judge also mentioned that he had taken into consideration that the pedophile rapist was an Irish citizen of foreign extraction whose next to non-existent English speaking ability would make serving time in prison more difficult.

Unsettled by the ‘intolerable’ abuse that occurred ‘as a matter of rote,’ Justice Michael White handed the defendant concurrent sentences of only 12 years.

In the court’s victim impact statement, the young rape survivor expressed that she still is suffering from low self-esteem, chronic stress, insomnia, and that her academic studies have suffered as a result of the abuse.

One can only hope and pray that this young girl won’t have to deal with these afflictions for the rest of her life.

In a statement given to the court, the girl said that when she heard the guilty verdict she broke down emotionally, saying, “I sometimes feel as if I am at the bottom of the ocean… with no light at all.”

    The rapist is a Muslim immigrant. The article should have mentioned this. Under Islamic law (“sharia”) it is lawful to have forced sex with minors.

    12 years is a long time to wait…but I’m sure when the perp is released there will be a few relatives ready to take up where the legal system failed.

    I can tell you that the suffering of this poor girl will be many many more years than the 12 that were given to this animal. Shame on the judge for being so lenient with someone who has caused so much harm to a child.

    That Irishman was NOT living in Ireland and THAT RAPE was ONLY causing that CHILD a lot of mental troubles that will likely follow her for entire life if not any time soon.
    A LOT of children are RAPED and they NEVER get over that RAP, some are just hoping that the RAPIST would not get out of jail anytime soon but they will carry that RAPE with them for most of her life if not FOR life and most will NEVER get over it unless that RAPIST dies and even then it will haught her for the rest of her life, OH! she could put it to the bacl of her mind so she will not have to think about it unless something reminds her of the RAPE.
    12 years is NOT really enough for what he did to her and death is too good for him from her idea of what she wants him to get

    The judge was more concerned about the abuser than the abused we see this all too often. I think it stems from the fact that there is so many of them in government that it not taken seriously, just look at the UK Government & their friends, including those in other EU Countries with the same problem, let`s not forget the Vatican & the Catholic Church world wide now and in the past-remember the dirty war in Argentina , not to mention the U.S.A. that`s the reason there is so much of it, and lack of concern for the young victims.

    Your headline is misleading. The rapist was not an Irishman. You refused to say his name (not PC?) so you leave us to guess. As an Irish/ American woman, I am insulted by your headline. Tell us who thinks it is ok to rape 12 yr old children.
    Fix this error or you are propagating Fake News.

    Only a Muslim would think it is OK to rape a child. Let snakes in your house and you’re going to get bit.
