THE child rapist Patrick O’Brien will appear before Mr Justice Paul Carney at the Central Criminal Court tomorrow morning.











The 72-year-old Dublin man, who was sentenced to 12 years with the final nine years suspended after he admitted raping his young daughter for ten years, had been released on bail on Monday pending an appeal.



He is listed to appear for mention in court room number six at 11am.



O'Brien, of Old Court Avenue, Bray, Co Wicklow pleaded guilty at the Central Criminal Court to 16 charges of the rape and indecent assault of Fiona Doyle at Mackintosh Park, Pottery Road, Dun Laoghaire from 1973 to 1982.



It’s understood that Mr Justice Carney will deal with outstanding counts, but it’s also expected the Director of Public Prosecutions will make an application in relation to the case.
