Grandfather admits sex attack at shop

A DUBLIN grandfather who sexually assaulted a female acquaintance at a supermarket in what he said was "a moment of madness" has been given a three-year suspended sentence.

The 69-year-old man, who has five children and six grandchildren, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to sexually assaulting the woman in her 40s at a Tesco store on November 21, 2009.

"I've the whole world in my hands, I'll die a happy man," he said during the attack.

The court heard that the accused has offered to pay €2,900 as a practical gesture of remorse to cover counselling at the Rape Crisis Centre for the victim and the cost of her Open University Course.
