Mother of four, 37, who had sex with man in busy city park is arrested

Gardaí found Natasha Rice, 37, asleep on the grass with her accomplice when they arrived, but a search of his phone uncovered “descriptive” pictures he had taken of their sexual activity.

The alarm was raised by a distraught passerby who called 999.

Rice had already been convicted of indecent exposure in Northern Ireland after she was spotted having sex with a man on a Belfast street in 2020.

In the latest incident, the defendant pleaded guilty to abusive conduct of a sexual nature on September 22, 2021, with an address on Parliament Street in central Dublin.

Dublin District Court heard it happened in Our Lady’s Park on Botanic Avenue in Drumcondra.

Detective Garda Eoin Morrison said he went to the small park by the Tolka River in response to a 911 call from a citizen who had seen the couple “engage in sexual activity”.

Arriving at 7:25 p.m., he found Rice and the man lying next to each other on the grass, asleep, “in a state of certain intoxication.”

The man, Peter O’Gorman, was previously tried and sentenced to six months in prison.

That day, O’Gorman was arrested for public order offenses and his cell phone was confiscated. When analyzed, it included images of the couple engaging in sexual activity at the location earlier in the evening, Det Gda Morrison said.

The images were previously described as “graphic”.

According to the timestamp, the incident happened at 4:30 p.m. when it was still light and the area was busy.

“She was given the opportunity to comment on the images but declined,” said Det Gda Morrison.

Rice had 214 criminal records. As well as indecent exposure in Northern Ireland, she also had previous convictions for offenses including assault, trespassing and theft.

The defendant was in a “difficult position” because she was homeless and had “significant alcohol problems,” her attorney said.

“She was restless asleep in the park and was drunk at the time,” he said. “That was what triggered the events. She is very sorry for what she did and knows that is unacceptable.”

Rice was now engaged to another man. They had a couple’s room in the hotel where she was staying and risked losing that accommodation if her current one-month sentence for theft was extended. She is taking steps to address her alcoholism, the attorney said, urging the judge not to extend her current sentence.

Judge Smyth cited her previous convictions and the fact that Rice previously pleaded not guilty.
