71-year-old jailed for sexual assault on teenage boy

A 71-year-old retired carpenter has been given a three years sentence for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old boy at a north Dublin swimming pool.

Oliver Newman of Hazelwood Park, Artane, pleaded guilty to two counts of sexually assaulting the boy in the changing room shower of the pool on dates between July and August 2003.

Judge Katherine Delahunt suspended the final two years of sentence due to Newman's age and directed he undergo five years post release supervision after his release.
