A SERIAL sex offender is to appeal against the severity of his 14-year sentence for attacking women he met through the Tinder dating app.
And the State is to argue that the sentence, of which the final two years were suspended, was too lenient.
Father-of-two Patrick Nevin, 38, previously of Dun Laoghaire, south Dublin, attacked three women during their first meetings in the space of 11 days.

Nevin had pleaded guilty to raping one woman at Bellewstown, Co Meath, on July 12, 2014, and to sexual assault four days later of a second woman at an unknown place in Co Meath.
Mr Justice George Birmingham today set July 30 as the date for Nevin’s appeal.
Both appeals will be heard the same date.
