A man has been jailed for three years for engaging in sexual activity with a girl after a teenage disco in Dublin two years ago.

The man, who cannot be named to protect the girl's identity, was giving her a lift home when he took advantage of her while she was drunk.

On July 17th 2015, the girl went to a teenage disco at the Old Wesley Rugby Club in Donnybrook. She was 14 at the time.

She drank vodka beforehand and didn't feel well afterwards so contacted the accused for a lift and he picked her up outside a nearby petrol station.

They’d met through Facebook and this was their first time to meet in person. He was 19 at the time.

The court heard he stopped the car and they engaged in some sexual activity before he brought her to McDonalds for food.

She was visibly distressed when she got home and told her sister what happened. The man was arrested three days later.

Judge Melanie Greally said it the girl was intoxicated and unwell when she got into the car and he took advantage for his own sexual gratification.

The man admitted one charge of defilement of a child under the age of 15 and was handed a four year sentence today with the final year suspended.
