A Co. Carlow man who sexually abused his nephew will be sentenced later this month.
The 58-year-old man, who cannot be identified to protect his victim's identity, was convicted by a jury following a trial at the Central Criminal Court last month of two counts of indecent assault in Co Carlow on dates between October 1985 and March 1986.
The accused man was acquitted of eight further counts of indecent assault of the boy, who is now in his forties.
The boy was nine years old and the accused man was 26 years old at the time.
Yesterday Ms Justice Isobel Kennedy adjourned finalisation of the sentence until May 22nd next.
