Serial rapist who 'poses an indefinite danger to women' is battling cancer in prison
Serial offender Paul Moore (51) has been jailed six times for sexual offences over the last 25 years
A rapist described as posing an indefinite danger to women is battling cancer in prison.
Paul Moore (51) has been jailed six times for sexual offences over the last 25 years. He is currently serving 18 months for an assault on a woman on the DART.
In recent years, he sexually assaulted two women in separate incidents in Dublin city centre after stopping them in the street and asking them for a cigarette.
In 2015, he was jailed for 15 months for these attacks. He was released in April 2016 and was subject to probation supervision.
His other offences include raping a musician in 2001, for which he received ten years and raping another woman in 1995, for which he received seven years.
Moore is now battling cancer in Midlands Prison in Portlaoise.
It is understood he visited a priest in Dublin yesterday and family members are visiting him in prison over the weekend.
There are no plans to move the convicted sex offender from Portlaoise at the moment.
In 2015, when he was jailed for 15 months, Judge Martin Nolan stated that he “has a predisposition to violence towards women, which manifests as rape and sexual assault”.
