A high risk rapist from Tayside was detained for six years on Wednesday after attacking two teenagers in separate assaults.
Jordan Dunn first struck when he was aged 17 and carried out a second rape when he was 19 years old.
Dunn had originally faced five charges, including further allegations of rape and threatening or abusive behaviour at his flat in Swallowtail Court, Dundee, but was convicted of two rape offences after an earlier trial.
His first sex attack took place at a house in Perthshire in the summer of 2015 on a victim who was aged 17.
Dunn struck again on May 11 last year when he attacked a 19-year-old in Dundee and raped her after trying to kiss her, pushing her and struggling with her.
Defence counsel Mark Stewart QC said that Dunn was “somewhat isolated” and had been subjected to bullying at school.
He added: “This is a young man who requires some assistance to develop the maturity he lacks.”
Judge Lady Carmichael told Dunn at the High Court in Edinburgh: “Although you are only 20 years of age your record of offending is already a cause for serious concern.”
She added that in discussions with a social worker preparing a background report on him he had used “insulting and derogatory language” about his latest victims.
Lady Carmichael said that tended to reinforce an impression of Dunn as “a young man with a troubling and distorted attitude to older girls and young women”.
She told him: “I accept immaturity and insecurity play a part in your presentation and in your offending and you may be assisted to overcome this by work undertaken in custody.”
The judge said she had reduced his sentence to six years from seven to take account of time he spent on remand.
She also ordered that he be kept under supervision for a further four year period when he can be returned to custody if he breaches licence conditions.
Lady Carmichael said that because of Dunn’s previous offending, his latest crimes and an assessment of him as posing a high risk of re-offending she was satisfied that the normal licence period would not be sufficient for protection of the public from serious harm.
Dunn was also placed on the sex offenders’ register.
Tayside Police Division welcomed the sentence and praised Dunn’s victims.
Detective Inspector Keith Duncan of the divisional rape investigation unit said: “I would like to pay tribute and thank the women who had the strength to report these traumatic offences to the police.
“Their courage during the inquiry and subsequent proceedings has enabled the case to be brought before the court and has led to the sentence delivered today.
“I would also like to thank our partner agencies who provided vital support to these women and the police inquiry.
“This case reinstates Police Scotland’s commitment to protecting the public. I would encourage anyone who has been the victim of sexual crime to have the confidence to report this to Police Scotland.
“Along with partner agencies we will work tirelessly to support survivors and ensure offenders are brought to justice.”
