Police praise victims’ bravery after Fife paedophile is jailed for nine years

A Fife man found guilty of a series of sex offences against children dating back to 1990 has been jailed for nine years.

David Morrison, 50, was last month found guilty of rape and assault as well as lewd, indecent and libidinous practices and behaviour against male and female children, at addresses in the Dysart and Kirkcaldy areas, between 1990 and 2006.

He was also convicted of assaulting a woman between 1989 and 2016.

Morrison appeared for sentencing today at the High Court in Edinburgh, where he received an order for lifelong restriction, and nine years in jail.

He will also be supervised for a further three years once released from prison.
