Man sentenced to four and a half years for historical sexual abuse offences

Detectives from the Police Service of Northern Ireland’s Public Protection Branch have welcomed the sentencing of a 51 year old man at Coleraine Crown Court today, Friday 20th May.

Cyril Moore was sentenced to four and a half years for a number of historical sexual abuse offences, including 10 counts of Indecent Assault on a female, which were committed by him in the early 2000s.

He will be placed on the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years.

Detective Constable Neill said: “We have a team of dedicated detectives who will robustly investigate reports and who remain determined to bring anyone involved in any form of abuse before the courts to answer for their crimes, no matter when they occurred.


Please be assured that we have specially trained officers who will treat victims with sensitivity and respect – at every stage of the process. I would continue to encourage anyone who has experienced any form of sexual abuse to contact police on 101, or in an emergency call 999. Once you’ve made a report, you don’t have to come into a police station, detectives can arrange to meet you at a time and place that best suits you.”
