Liam Adams found guilty of ten charges that he raped and sexually abused his daughter Aine

WEST Belfast man Liam Adams has been found guilty of raping and sexually abusing his daughter more than 30 years ago.

Adams, the younger brother of Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams, was found guilty by a majority verdict on a total of ten charges including rape, indecent assault and gross indecency.

The jury of nine men and three women reached a verdict of 11-1 on all counts.

The offences are alleged to have happened when his daughter, Áine Adams, was five until she was nine-years-old.

Following the guilty verdicts, Aine said in a statement read out by a police officer: “I do not see this verdict as a victory, nor a celebration, as it has taken its toll and has caused hurt, heartache and anguish to all those involved.

“I can now begin my life at 40 and lay to rest the memory of the 5-year-old girl who was abused.”

During his trial, Liam Adams, of Bernagh Drive, denied all the charges.

The jury at Belfast Crown Court retired on Tuesday morning following summing up of the evidence from the prosecution and defence barristers.

The trial has been presided over by Judge Corinne Philpott.
