Two guilty of hotel rape

TWO men have been convicted of raping a woman in a Dublin hotel.

The 32 and 39-year-old men had pleaded not guilty at the Central Criminal Court to raping the woman on March 3, 2008.

Mr Justice Garrett Sheehan thanked the jury for their service and excused them from further service for five years.

He directed the men be added to the sex offenders register and that a victim impact statement be prepared. He set a sentence date of June 27.
