Ten years for pervert

A SEX beast who raped two girls was jailed yesterday for 10 years. 

James Leslie, 51, from Macduff, Banffshire, was also put on the sex offenders register at the High Court in Inverness after he admitted a catalogue of offences. 

Leslie began sexually abusing the girls in the 1980s when they were aged nine and 12. 

He admitted seven charges, including two of raping the girls and four of lewd, indecent and libidinous behaviour. 

Judge Lord Bonomy told the divorced father-of-four his reign of terror had done “untold damage” to his two victims.
