A former paramilitary has been sentenced to 15 years for raping and sexually assaulting the daughters of a woman he met on the internet.
The 53-year-old, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his victims, committed the abuse in Donegal, Northern Ireland and in a European country while on holidays there.
He began abusing one of the children a few weeks after meeting her mother. He would show her child pornography and make her recreate what she had seen.
The now 11-year-old girl said she still worries he will come back and take her and her sister away. She said she “wants to put signs up to let others know what he did” and hopes he will be hurt in prison.
The man initially made a full confession but then fled the country while on bail. He was later extradited back to face trial.
