Paedophile jailed for three years in April – set free in August

A perverted paedophile from Greenock who was jailed for nearly three years just four months ago after fantasising about raping his own baby is now set to be released in a FORTNIGHT.

Pervert Robert Aitman, also known as Robert McNab — who was told by a sheriff that it was hard to imagine a more serious sexual abuse intention — will be freed after winning an appeal against his original 35-month prison term.

The 30-year-old had the jail term slashed following representations by his legal team, and it was also backdated to November 7 last year when he was first remanded in custody.

It means that Aitman — who also downloaded and distributed child sexual abuse images to other paedophiles online — is likely to be back on the streets early next month because offenders ordinarily serve only half of the time they are given.

The ruling was confirmed by the Justiciary Office of the Scottish Courts and Tribunals service when we contacted them.

At his original sentencing hearing in March, Aitman was told by Sheriff Derek Hamiltonthat he posed a significant ongoing risk to the general public.

The sex offender stared blankly ahead in the dock of Greenock Sheriff Court as a series of disturbing facets of his personality, including hostility towards women, were highlighted

Aitman sent a vile online text message to a woman telling her that he wanted her to give birth to his baby so that he could then rape the infant.

He stored the sordid conversation on a mobile phone that he also used to circulate disgusting child pornography images among other twisted perverts.

Aitman — who was placed on the Sex Offenders Register indefinitely by Sheriff Hamilton — accumulated the illegal pictures and videos over a period of nearly a decade.

Sheriff Hamilton told him: “You pleaded guilty to a number of very serious charges involving child pornography.

“You downloaded images over a very significant period of time — nine years.

“There is also a very serious charge of distributing images.

“As for the offence under the Communications Act, one can hardly imagine more serious content than to suggest you have a baby with a complete stranger and then rape the child.”

The sheriff described this offence as being ‘particularly awful’.

The court was told previously how a forensic inspection of two mobile phones and a tablet computer owned by Aitman yielded a total of 37 images and one video which showed abused children ranging in age ‘from baby to 14 years’.

He committed his offences between November 3 2007 and November 4 2016.

He had previous convictions for hoarding indecent images of children and sexually assaulting a young girl

Aitman’s lawyer said at the time that he had been the victim of repeated sexual abuse as a child, adding: “He is an individual who would otherwise be regarded as vulnerable.”

In relation to Aitman’s baby rape text, which was sent via the Kik messenger app, the solicitor said: “It is a discussion, not a perpetrated assault.”

Aitman has been assessed by experts as being a high risk of reoffending, citing a ‘lack of concern towards others’ and ‘deviant sexual interests’.

An extended two-year sentence in the community following his release from prison, which was also imposed by Sheriff Hamilton, was upheld by the appeal court.

Paedophile who said he wanted to rape a newborn baby jailed for 35 months

A SEX beast who said he wanted to have a baby with a stranger so he could rape it, has been jailed for 35 months.

Vile Robert McNab, also known as Robert Aitman, hoarded child rape images for nearly a decade and shared it with other perverts online.

He then revealed his horrific fantasy to a stranger on Kik mobile messaging app by telling her he wanted to have a child with her so he could abuse it.

The brute, 30, was today branded a danger to the public as he was caged at Greenock Sheriff Court.

McNab was living in a flat in Ann Street, Greenock when he was found to have a stash of child abuse images on two mobile phones and a tablet computer at his home in the town in November last year.

The monster, who also chatted to people on Facebook and WhatsApp using a fake name, was found to have a horrific clutch of child porn pictures and videos on the devices – including footage of babies and children up to the age of 14 being sexually abused.

He had previous convictions for hoarding indecent images of children and sexually assaulting a young girl

He pled guilty to downloading child sex abuse images, sharing it with others and sending offensive internet messages at his  flat between November 2007 and November 2016.

Sheriff Derek Hamilton told McNab: “You’ve pleaded guilty to a number of very serious charges involving child pornography.

“You downloaded images over a very significant period, and that is nine years.

“You have the very serious charge of distributing images to others.

“You also discussed your desire to have a baby with a complete stranger and then to rape the child.”

He added: “You discussed the sexual abuse of a child and the rape of a baby.

“That is a particularly awful offence.

“I am satisfied, in your case, the risk is not restricted to you further offending by accessing indecent images.

“You pose a much wider and greater risk to the general public.

“The reports note your hostility towards women, your lack of concern for others, impulsive actions, sexual actions and deviant sexual interests.

“I am satisfied the public is at risk and an extended sentence is appropriate.”

McNab was also placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register for life and will be monitored for two years when he is released from prison.
