Pensioner jailed for 11 years over child abuse cases

A Clydebank pensioner has been jailed for 11 years after being found guilty of sexual assaults on children.

Own Hollern was convicted at Glasgow’s High Court on Friday, where he appeared again for sentencing earlier today.

The 70-year-old carried out four serious sexual assaults on two female victims, aged 10 and 14 at the time, in Dumbarton between 1975 – 1988.
