A Dundee man is facing jail after being convicted of the historical sexual abuse of two children.
Gibson Dunbar separately abused the two girls, who both were under ten at the time, in the late 1980s and mid 1990s.
Dunbar was found guilty after a three-day trial of two charges of using lewd and libidinous practices towards the youngsters at addresses in Dundee.
His defence advocate Jonathan Crowe told the city’s sheriff court that the 49-year-old was “under no illusion” about the possibility of a prison term.
A jury took just under two hours to find Dunbar guilty of the charges.
Two further charges of lewd and libidinous behaviour against a separate complainer between 1995 and 1996 were found not proven by the jury, and another similar charge against a fourth girl between 1998 and 1999 was found not guilty.
Following the verdict Mr Crowe told the court: “I am instructed to move for bail but Mr Dunbar is under no illusion when the outcome could be when your lordship has all the reports.”
Sheriff Alastair Carmichael deferred sentence until November 9 for reports and granted Dunbar bail.
