Sex offender’s home attacked

Sex offender, David Sidney Cahill’s home has been attacked by stones, resulting in broken windows and his car being burned out at Community Walk, Mosside while it is understood his elderly mother was inside the house.

The identity of a prolific sex offender can be revealed to the public following a legal battle fought by the Belfast Telegraph.

Convicted rapist David Sidney Cahill (37) had sought to keep his identity hidden despite committing a string of sex offences.

In a written submission to District Judge Liam McNally at Coleraine Magistrates Court recently, lawyers for Cahill unsuccessfully argued that if his offending came to light his life could be in danger from loyalist paramilitaries.
