A man has been convicted of sexually abusing young girls in Fife and Edinburgh over a decade.
Wayne Elliot, 37, pled guilty to rape, lewd and libidinous practices and sexual assault following the abuse of four girls between October 2007 and September 2018.
The offences took place at addresses in central and north east Fife, and Edinburgh. The girls were aged between six and 16 during the time of the abuse.
He admitted the offences at Edinburgh High Court today and will be sentenced on February 28.
Elliot, 37, became subject of an investigation by Fife’s Public Protection unit in September 2018 when the victims all came forward to report the sexual abuse.
Elliot is a callous predator and his guilty plea is testament to the evidence provided by the young women he targeted and the investigative work carried out by the public protection unit.
He was arrested and charged on September 28 2018 .
Detective Constable Ross French, from Fife’s public protection unit, said: “For over a decade, Wayne Elliot subjected four girls to horrific levels of sexual abuse and, had it not been for their courage in reporting these crimes, his actions may have gone unpunished.
“Elliot is a callous predator and his guilty plea is testament to the evidence provided by the young women he targeted and the investigative work carried out by the public protection unit.
“I want to make it clear to anyone affected by sexual abuse that time is no barrier for reporting crimes of this nature and any disclosures made to us will be investigated with the utmost professionalism and sensitivity to bring perpetrators to justice.”
