A former community centre manager found guilty of sex crimes against children and adults spanning several decades could be facing a life sentence.

David Robertson, 55, of Aberdeen, was found guilty of 25 charges - including the rapes of two women and a young girl.

Seven of his victims were children and the other nine were adults, including two men.

A judge has further deferred sentencing for a full risk assessment.

Robertson accepted that he had committed some of the offences when he gave evidence during his trial at the High Court in Aberdeen.

Judge Lord Boyd of Duncansby adjourned the sentencing hearing at the High Court in Glasgow until August to decide whether Robertson should be made the subject of an Order for Lifelong Restriction (OLR).

An OLR means Robertson would be monitored for the rest of his life after a jail term.
