Danger beast is back in prison

A SEX monster who raped a schoolboy was behind bars again last night.

Graham Sneddon — once dubbed the most dangerous man in Central Scotland — admitted five breaches of a Sex Offences Prevention Order.

He was banned in July 2008 from travelling outside Central Scotland Police area and from communicating with anyone under 16 not known to him.

Sneddon, 29, of Larbert, Stirlingshire, was also barred from contacting anyone he had known in jail.

But Falkirk Sheriff Court heard that he breached all these.

In 1998, when he was 16, Sneddon was caged for six years for raping a 14-year-old boy. Yesterday, Sheriff Tom McCartney jailed him for 21 months. A court source said: “He’s where he belongs.”

Summary of offences :

In 1998 when Sneddon was 16 years old he raped a 14 year old boy. He was also convicted of luring two girls, aged nine and ten, to a remote location and forced them to remove their clothing – stared at them – then threatened them with violence if they were to report the incident. He was sentenced to two and a half years. According to parents from Bo’ness, he was noticed wandering around the school area up to four times a day.
