‘My brother wouldn’t harm anyone,’ sister of man facing 387 sex assault charges tells court
The accused appeared in a US federal court in the New York capital on Friday where he was accompanied by his legal team and his sister. The court also heard the man had not “fled” Ireland, but had moved to the United States for a better life. The accused is facing almost 400 charges of sexual offences against minors in the midlands area. He is wanted for questioning over the alleged sexual assault and rape of two minors, mostly at a GAA ground in the midlands between 2004 and 2009. He faces 387 counts of sexual assault, including 177 counts of rape.
