Teenage sex beast, 18, is caged

A sex beast who raped a 14-year-old schoolgirl was jailed for 4½ years yesterday.

Gary Rankine, 18, launched his sick attack on the traumatised youngster, who tried to fight him off, after she’d been drinking, the High Court in Edinburgh heard.

Rankine, of Kincardine, Fife, was found guilty of raping the girl in the town in October 2009.

He was given an extra 10 weeks’ jail for punching a 15-year-old boy who called him a “beast” and another three months for trying to defeat the ends of justice.
