Vile child sex attacker who got girl pregnant TWICE has been jailed again for spying on primary schoolgirls

A CHILD sex attacker jailed for getting a teenager pregnant twice has been locked up again after he spied on young girls on their way to primary school.

Peter Staszek, 64, left his sheltered housing complex every morning to chat with the ten-year-old girls as they innocently made their way to classes in Dalkeith, Midlothian.

Pervert Staszek would often speak to the youngsters on the street and on one occasion told one of the girls she “looked gorgeous” and that she must have “a hot date”.

Following the disturbing comment, the terrified school pupil rushed to tell her teacher what the sex beast had said to her and the police were soon called in.

Staszek was caged for six years in 1995 after he admitted unlawful sex with a 14-year-old girl who was then forced to give birth to a still born child before leaving the tot’s body in a Dalkeith park.

A police appeal for the mothers to come forward proved fruitless and the horrific crime was only uncovered after the girl fell pregnant for a second time by Staszek and she underwent an abortion.

Subsequent DNA result then showed a match with the still born baby and Staszek was arrested.

He was also jailed in 2002 for indecency charges and was sentenced to a 30-month sentence in 2011 after he was caught chatting to a nine-year-old girl and a 13-year-old girl while visiting friends

The paedophile was also handed a ten-year Sexual Offences Prevention Order (SOPO) in 2013 banning him from approaching or speaking to children.

Now he is back behind bars after admitting to breaching the SOPO by communicating with four young girls at Old Edinburgh Road, Dalkeith, Midlothian, between August 1 last year and March 2 this year.

Yesterday, Edinburgh Sheriff Court was told Staszek was spotted “every morning” standing on the street near to a primary school where he would say “good morning” to the Primary 7 pupils.

Fiscal depute Kim Schofield said: “On March 1 [this year] one of the girls was walking to school with friends and the accused known to all of them would often say “hello” to them.

“The accused walked towards them and he waited and stared at them and said ‘good morning’ to them. As one of the girls passed the accused said ‘you look gorgeous as usual – have you got a hot date?

“The girl was scared by that comment and told a teacher when she arrived at school. The teacher said the girl was “visibly upset” and her mother was called in.”

The girl then told her mother Staszek spoke to her and her pals “most mornings” and the worried mum called in the police.

Following his arrest for breaking the SOPO Staszek was then identified by all the girls during a police identity parade.

Sheriff Norman McFadyen – who jailed the pervert for three years – said: “This was a breach of a bail order and you already have a significant record for breaching orders due to your predilection for children.”
