Man Sentenced to Four Years for Rape of Woman

Tuesday 8th February, at Craigavon Crown Court, 32 year old Kieran Vige was sentenced to four years for rape of a woman.  

He will also be subject to a Sexual Offences Prevention Order for 5 years and has been placed on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely.

Detective Constable Mallon stated: “The woman in this case displayed immense courage in seeing this investigation through to a successful conclusion.  I hope that her tenacity and resolution to bring this man to justice will encourage anyone else who has experienced any form of sexual abuse to come forward to police.

“Officers in the Police Service of Northern Ireland remain committed to investigating all reports of sexual offences. We will seek to place offenders before the courts so they can be made amenable for their crimes. 

“I would like to take this opportunity to assure any victims of sexual abuse that they will be treated with sensitivity and respect, and I would continue to encourage anyone who has experienced any form of sexual abuse to contact police on 101, or ‘999’ in an emergency.”
