garda crestA Co. Tipperary teenager, who recently completed his Leaving Certificate examination, has appeared before Limerick District Court yesterday, charged with the rape and sexual assault of a seven-year-old girl.

The 18 year old was charged with two counts of raping the seven year old and 13 counts of sexual assault alleged to have taken place on dates between August 2010 and December 2011, at two different locations in Co Limerick and one location in Co Clare.

Gardaí gave evidence of arresting the teenager at his home in Tipperary on Tuesday last, before being formally charged at Henry Street Garda Station.

It is understood that the teenager made no reply to the charges and Judge John O’Neill adjourned the matter until October 9th next.
