John Paterson abused sleeping guests in Glasgow home
A man who sexually assaulted two young men at his home in Glasgow has been jailed for 18 months.
John Paterson, 61, denied attacking both his victims in August 2011 after giving them drinks and inviting them to stay overnight in his spare room.
Paterson was convicted of performing a sex act on one of the young men and sexually assaulting both of them.
At the High Court in Livingston, he was jailed for 18 months on each charge. The sentences will run concurrently.
Passing sentence, judge Lord Burns told Paterson: "As you and your counsel recognise, these are serious offences with which I have to deal and I've come to the view that no other sentence than one of imprisonment is appropriate here.
"You are 61 years of age, you've had a good work record and you have no previous convictions - no previous contact with police or other authorities - and it's tragic that a man such as you should now be facing imprisonment in the high court.
"However, the fact is that you have been convicted of a serious invasion of the physical integrity of these two young men to whom you gave hospitality in August of 2011 and then proceeded to abuse them as they were sleeping in your spare room."
