Inverkeithing: Sick paedophile avoids jail sentence

A vile paedophile who downloaded tens of thousands of images of youngsters being sexually abused narrowly escaped a prison sentence

Alexander Dickson, formerly of Broxburn but who now lives at an address in Inverkeithing, had a prior historic conviction for sexual offending but was instead given a community sentence with three years’ supervision, a strict conduct requirement and punishment of 200 hours of unpaid work.
