Paedophile Raymond Robertson jailed for sex abuse offences

A man who bound a young girl, shared images of abuse and fantasised about murder has been jailed for three years.

Raymond Robertson, 41, was caught after he shared a photo online of the girl being abused at his former home in Stewarton, East Ayrshire.

He was later convicted of offences between March 2011 and March 2014.

Robertson's name will be added to the sex offenders' register indefinitely and he will be monitored for two years after his release from prison.

Kilmarnock Sheriff Court heard that Robertson pretended to his victim that he was playing a game.

Incriminating messages

He then used gaffer tape and cord to tie her against a bunk bed and took pictures as she struggled to get free.

The 41-year-old then shared a photo online with other men.

Police Scotland was alerted by Cheshire Constabulary following the arrest of convicted paedophile Terry Moore, from Chester.

When officers raided Robertson's home in March 2014 they uncovered school uniforms, a hoard of child sex abuse images and incriminating Skype and email messages.

Robertson, now of Paisley, Renfrewshire, was found guilty of taking, possessing and distributing child sex abuse images, messaging others while exchanging pictures of schoolgirls, discussing raping, suffocating, torturing, drowning them "and obtaining sexual gratification from watching them struggle and suffer".

Robertson was also convicted of causing a child to participate in sexual activity by tying and gagging her tightly against a bunk bed and on a bed, performing an indecent act and photographing the activities.
