Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard in August 2014, the au pair got on the Dart and the accused Paul Moore (51) of Mountjoy Square came down and sat opposite her.
He engaged her in small talk about where she was from and then said you probably think I’m crazy..
A garda told the Judge the accused then asked her what stones were in her earrings and leaned forward and moved his fingers over her breasts. He also grabbed at her trousers.
The au pair went to gardai who retrieved CCTV footage – however Paul Moore wasn’t identified until almost two years later. He pleaded guilty to sexual assault but said he has memories problems.
He has 13 previous convictions including two for rape. He’s been released on continuing bail and the case is due back before the courts on Monday.
