Scots paedophile posed as teenage boy before luring girl to home and raping her
A paedo pretended to be a teenage boy online before attacking and raping a 14-year-old girl.
Craig Dunsmore, 27, was jailed for six years and three months after being found guilty of the attack at Edinburgh High Court.
The sick cleaner posed as a 15-year-old and persuaded his teenage victim to travel to meet him in Edinburgh before he carried out the horrific attack on her at his home in the city’s Broomhouse area.
Dunsmore was also convicted of a number of other sexual offences, including having indecent images and extreme pornography on a phone.
He had also contacted a 13-year-old girl through another phone and asked for images of her buttocks.
A judge told him at the High Court in Edinburgh: “It is a matter of concern that having been arrested twice you continued to pursue your sexual interest in children.”
The court heard that he had met the rape victim through the internet and told her that he was aged 15 and got her to travel to Edinburgh from her home town.
During the rape attack on January 19 in 2019 he pushed her onto a bed and held her down
Judge Alison Stirling told him: “She froze thinking she was going to be raped, which is what happened.”
Dunsmore, formerly of Broomhouse Medway, had denied raping the girl during an earlier trial but was found guilty of the offence.
He was also convicted of engaging in sexual activity with the underage girl, including requesting that she take naked photos of herself and send them to him.
He was also convicted of possessing and distributing indecent pictures of children and possessing extreme pornography of explicit and realistic images of rape and non-consensual sex between adults and bestiality.
The cleaner was further convicted of requesting that a 13-year-old girl send him images of her buttocks during communications with her in September 2019, when he had been freed under two bail orders at Edinburgh Sheriff court.
Dunsmore had again said he was 15 years old.
The judge told him during a sentencing hearing that Dunsmore followed via a live link to prison : “Custody is the only appropriate disposal having regard to the serious nature of your offending.”
Dunsmore was placed on the sex offenders’ register indefinitely.
