Martin Bordon admits raping schoolgirl in Kirkintilloch

A 55-year-old man is facing a prison sentence after he admitted raping and sexually assaulting a 13-year-old girl.

Martin Bordon attacked the youngster at his home in Kirkintilloch, East Dunbartonshire, between June 2011 and March this year.

The High Court in Glasgow heard how Bordon, who bought the girl a pregnancy test kit, was caught after she told a teacher what had happened.

Sentence was deferred and Bordon was placed on the sex offenders register.

The court heard how the girl - who was 12 when she was first attacked - would visit the widower's home.

In June last year, she awoke to find Bordon raping her.

Prosecutor Shirley McKenna told how the girl "did not know what to do".

Pregnancy concerns

Bordon attacked the girl again around Christmas time after entering a room naked.

The court was told he later gave the girl gifts for her birthday and on Valentine's Day.

In March this year, Bordon had sex with the girl, who was now aged 13, once more.

Ms McKenna said that Bordon bought her a test kit after she "had concerns that she was pregnant".

The teenager eventually confided in a teacher, saying: "I think I have been raped".

Police later detained Bordon who claimed he had a "carry on" with the girl, but admitted having intercourse with her.

Judge Lord Bannatyne remanded him in custody pending sentence next month.
