A serial sex offender who attacked women he met on Tinder has been sentenced to 12 years in prison.

37 year old Patrick Nevin was sentenced today after pleading guilty to two offences which took place just four days apart.

 

Patrick Nevin who was 33 at the time of the offences, met both women through tinder and picked them up for dates near their homes.

Both victims previously told the court that they had been terrified by their ordeals.

The women were afraid Nevin would return to "get them" as he knew where they lived, and both said their relationships with friends and family had been severely damaged, they suffer from anxiety and one of the victims has since moved house, and lost a job offer as she did not want to tell her new employer why she had to attend court proceedings.

Ms Justice Eileen Creedon said that they had been "premeditated and callous, sustained attacks"

Patrick Nevin pleaded guilty to one charge of rape and one count of sexual assault.

A letter of apology was handed in for both victims

He was sentenced to 14 years, with the final two years suspended.
