Ayrshire pensioner jailed for sexual assaults on young girls

A pensioner who sexually assaulted two schoolgirls who were aged 12 and 15 years old has been jailed for nine months after a judge slammed his lack of remorse.

Archibald Shaw, 80 of Adamhill Farm, Craigie pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting the 15-year-old girl at a house in Ardrossan in March 2013.

He also admitted making sexual comments and advances towards a 12-year-old girl whilst in a vehicle on various roads in North Ayrshire in January last year and also assaulting the same girl by repeatedly and intentionally touching her on the legs or buttocks.
