Limerick man used facebook to groom teenager for sexual assault

first_imgby Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A COUNTY Limerick man used Facebook to a groom a 13-year-old girl for two weeks before he sexually assaulted her at a derelict house, Limerick Circuit Court has heard.Three years ago, Lee Carey (21) of Sycamore Heights, Patrickswell posed as an older man on the facebook site where he befriended the young girl.He adopted the alter ego of 36-year-old Nigel O’Dea and developed extensive contact with the girl through the site, exchanging “messages of a sexual nature”.Garda Tracey Corcoran said that the matters came to light when the girl’s mother met her daughter walking home after she met Carey in the derelict house.The mother became suspicious of her daughter’s movements on May 12, 2011 when she said she was going to meet a friend.  She dispatched her partner and eldest son to trace her daughter’s whereabouts.Half an hour after meeting Carey, the young girl reappeared and admitted that she had met him and they had kissed and held each other. They parted ways after Carey received a text from his girlfriend and the girl received a phone call from her mother.Lee Carey was seen by the girl’s mother emerging from the derelict house. A short time later, she put the allegation to Carey’s father who said he knew nothing about it.Gardaí subsequently uncovered two weeks of exchanged messages between the user “Nigel O’Dea” and the young girl. Carey subsequently changed the user profile name to Nigel O’Connor.In September 2011, Lee Carey made full admissions to gardai of his involvement before any complaint was made to Gardaí.An official complaint was made by the young girl over 11 months after the incident and Garda Corcoran told the court that the victim she didn’t want to speak about it and described as a “negative statement”.The court heard explicit details of the messages sent to the young girl and the conversations of a sexual nature that she was invited to respond to.He asked the girl if he should bring a condom to the meeting and while there, he twice asked if he could he could engage in digital penetration.On September 26 last year, Lee Carey, now 24, pleaded guilty to the sexual exploitation of a child by inviting them to engage in a sexual act on dates between April 29, 2011 and May 12, 2011 and to sexually assaulting the 13 year old girl on May 12, 2011.Defence counsel, Mark Nicholas told the court that his client had “since married a long-term girlfriend on full disclosure basis”.He said that Mr Carey was very remorseful over his “utter lunacy and bad judgement”. and was prepared to take any step possible to address this.Judge Carroll Moran said the defendant’s actions amounted to a “grooming process of a very young girl”. He praised her mother for being “alive and aware” as to what was possibly going on.“Who knows what would have happened had her mother not put a stop to it”, Judge Moran added.Imposing a three year prison sentence, Judge Carroll Moran said that he would suspend it given the positive report before the court which presented Lee Carey as a of a “low risk to children”, but placed his name on the register for sex offenders for five years.

Resistance at FERC to White House Plan for Aid to Coal and Nuclear Industries

first_imgResistance at FERC to White House Plan for Aid to Coal and Nuclear Industries FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Reuters:The head of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said on Tuesday that a directive from the U.S. energy secretary to prop up struggling nuclear and coal power plants has initiated an important conversation, but hinted the agency may not pass the plan without changes.Late last month, U.S. Energy Secretary Rick Perry directed FERC, an independent agency, to pass a rule within 60 days that would allow certain coal and nuclear plants that store 90 days of fuel on site to recover full costs through regulated pricing, saying the plan increases reliability of the nation’s power grid.Last week, FERC Chairman Neil Chatterjee told reporters that he did not want to do anything to disrupt the existing power market structure, formed over nearly two decades and large investments.His Republican counterpart on the commission, Robert Powelson, said this month that Perry was being thoughtful, but there were “many different approaches on how we can tackle this issue.” Powelson said he would leave his job if a new rule undoes organized and competitive power markets, according to a report by S&P Global Market Intelligence’s SNL.Cheryl LaFleur, the Democrat on the commission, tweeted that Powelson’s comment was a “Great Message.”Chatterjee stressed at Tuesday’s conference that FERC makes its own decisions. Later on Tuesday Senator Maria Cantwell, the top Democrat on the Senate energy committee and 10 of her Democratic colleagues, wrote a letter urging FERC to reject Perry’s proposed rule because it would result in higher power bills for consumers.Power markets are changing with swift closures of both coal and nuclear plants but also a rapid rise in solar and wind power, said Chatterjee, a former adviser to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and one of two Republicans on FERC. The grid has maintained its reliability during these changes but only with the vigilance of regulators, he said.More: U.S. regulator hints at changes to plan boosting coal, nuclear plantslast_img read more

first_imgThe government has vowed to continue the development of national strategic projects during the COVID-19 health crisis with the addition of 89 new projects of an estimated Rp 1.422 quadrillion in investment value.Coordinating Economic Affairs Minister Airlangga Hartarto said on May 29 that the new projects were an addition to the existing 223 national strategic projects., and were expected to employ around 4 million workers every year from 2020 to 2024.“During the projects’ development over the next five years, [the projects] are hoped to involve a total of 19 million [workers],” Airlangga told a virtual press briefing on Friday, following a Cabinet meeting. The government’s statement on the planned projects comes on the heels of its plans to ease the large-scale social restrictions (PSBB) in COVID-19 “red zones” across the country and to introduce the “new normal” protocols for daily activities, despite the increase in confirmed cases. Official estimates show that the economy is likely to contract 0.4 percent in the worst-case scenario for the year.The President also ordered the acceleration of programs that could drive the “people’s economy”, such as the land certification, the transmigration land legalization and the social forestry programs. Jokowi also instructed to “solve the problems in the field as soon as possible, because I still hear that land clearing is still a major problem” in developing the national strategic projects.Public Works and Housing Minister Basuki Hadimuljono said at Friday’s briefing that the five “super priority” tourist destinations was among the strategic projects that had been earmarked for continued development.The “super priority” tourist destinations are Labuan Bajo in East Nusa Tenggara, Borobudur in Central Java, Likupang in North Sulawesi, Lake Toba in North Sumatra and Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara.Basuki added that several toll road projects would break ground this year, including the 14-kilometer section 4 of the Banda Aceh-Sigli toll road, the 33 km sections I and V of the Balikpapan-Samarinda toll road, and the 131 km Pekanbaru-Dumai toll road. Indonesia currently has 223 national strategic projects worth around Rp 4.2 quadrillion on its priority list, which has seen several revisions since 2016.The country completed 92 infrastructure projects in 2016-2019, against the 144 projects that the Committee for Acceleration of Priority Infrastructure Delivery (KPPIP) has targeted for completion by 2020.Topics : Airlangga said that the 89 new projects comprised 15 road and bridge projects, 13 dams and irrigation systems, 13 border infrastructure projects and 12 energy projects.The remaining projects comprised six railway projects, six clean water projects, five airports, five seaports, five industrial zones, three technology projects, three smelters, one seawall, one waste management project and one land procurement project in Central Kalimantan.Read also: At least 50 major infrastructure projects to be completed this yearPresident Joko “Jokowi” Widodo said at the briefing that although Indonesia was facing the COVID-19 pandemic, the development of national strategic projects must go on while adhering to the relevant health protocols.last_img read more

The 79 players represented 23 different countries and included five of the top-100 girls in the World Amateur Golf Rankings – including Humphreys, who is currently 26th.The win brings Humphreys a Ladies European Tour exemption into the La Reserva de Sotogrande Invitational hosted by Annika as well as coveted PING Junior Solheim Cup points.Humphreys opened with scores of 69 68 and held a three-shot lead as the final round got underway. Denmark’s Anne Normann chased her hard, shooting four-under on the front nine and drawing level after a fifth birdie on the 10th.But Humphreys moved ahead again with birdies on 14 and 16 and although Normann birdied the last, the title belonged to the English player.Humphreys said afterwards: “When Anne made three birdies in a row to get within one, the back nine became a bit edgy, but it was a fun day.”Annika commented: “Big congratulations to Lily May on the win and I look forward to following the future successes of all the players.”Humphreys adds this to the Welsh and Irish Women’s Stroke Play titles which she won earlier this season.Click here for full scoresCaption: Annika Sorenstam congratulates Lily May Humphreys (Image courtesy Annika Foundation)last_img read more
