Tinder Rapist Due Back In Court For Sentencing


Share this article


The sentence hearing of a serial rapist who targeted women on Tinder is due to get underway later this morning.

In the space of eleven days, Patrick Nevin, a father-of-two from Dun Laoghaire, attacked three women he met on the online dating app.

 

The methodology used in each of the three cases was almost identical.

After matching online, he’d move the conversation onto WhatsApp, collect them in his car and bring them to a secluded area where he’d attack them.

On July 12th that year, he raped a woman in parked car in Bettystown, Co. Meath.

Four days later, he sexually assaulted another woman – also in Meath. He pleaded guilty to those two offences last month.

On July 23rd 2014, he collected a Brazilian student and took her to a secluded part of the UCD campus where he assaulted her.

The woman returned to Ireland to give evidence against him late last year and a jury found him guilty.

In 2001, he was jailed for seven years for beating up his girlfriend. Before that, he was convicted of sexual offences during his time living in Denmark.

The now 36 year-old father-of-two is due back in court this morning for his sentence hearing.
