CHILD ABUSER 1: TAXI DRIVER CAGED FOR SEX ATTACKS ON GIRLS.

Byline: PAT FLANAGAN

A CABBIE was jailed yesterday for sex attacks on his two young babysitters.

Evil father-of-seven Daniel Eastwood told his victims, then aged nine and 10, he would slit their mothers' throats if they told anyone.

The 45-year-old, originally from West Dublin but now with an address at Clonmellon, Co Meath, was given a four-year sentence after being found guilty at a previous hearing of Dublin Circuit Criminal Court .

Yesterday one of the victims, who is now 16, said her young life had been ruined by Eastwood.

She added: "He used to threaten that he'd rape me and that he'd slice me mum's throat if I was to tell anybody.

"He threatened to rape me so many times, even when we were out in the car. I was afraid of men - all men."

The brave teenager said the vile pervert would try to bribe them with money and sweets. And she encouraged others being abused to come forward. Judge Haugh noted the girls had been subject to an intimidation campaign to try to stop them from coming to court.

He said: "I look upon this as a continuous and systematic programme of abuse against two young children."

The judge refused leave to appeal against the severity of the sentence.
