Babysitter jailed for raping and abusing schoolgirl

A babysitter who sexually abused and raped a schoolgirl has been jailed for eight years.

Jason Reilly, 46, from Glasgow, began molesting the girl from the age of four and then raped her when she was aged between 11 and 12.

At the High Court in Glasgow, Reilly was told he would have been jailed for 12 years but for his early guilty plea.

He was confronted by the girl’s mother after she learned of the abuse, which occurred between 2001 and 2009.

Lord Mulholland told Reilly: “You abused this girl for your own sexual gratification.

“She was very brave to come forward and tell someone what had happened to her.

“You robbed her of her childhood and you will now pay the price for that.”

Lord Mulholland told Reilly that he would have been jailed for 12 years, but for his early guilty plea.

The offences took place at a flat in Castlemilk.

The first offender pled guilty to rape as well as sexual abuse.

Prosecutor Stewart Ronnie told how the girl was “crying” as Reilly molested her.

The rape occurred some time between 2008 and 2009.

After Reilly was later challenged by the girl’s mother he went on to admit to a friend what he had done.

He was arrested last year and told police: “I know what I’ve done is wrong, but you can’t go back.”

Reilly was placed on the sex offenders register.

Paedophile who abused and raped child in Castlemilk faces lengthy prison sentence

A paedophile who raped a little girl during an eight-year campaign of abuse has been told he faces “a prison sentence of some length”.

Jason Reilly, 46, began abusing the child when she was just four years old.

The sickening attacks occurred at a flat in Castlemilk between 2001 and 2009.

When the youngster’s mum later learned of the abuse she confronted Reilly and told him: “You will be expecting a visit from the police.”

The first offender is now behind bars after he pled guilty to rape as well as a charge of lewd and libidinous behaviour.

A judge remanded him in custody at the High Court in Glasgow pending sentencing next month.

Prosecutor Stewart Ronnie told how the girl was “crying” as Reilly molested her.

She once described him as “minging”.

The rape occurred at a time between 2008 and 2009.

After Reilly was later challenged by the girl’s mum, he went on to admit to a friend what he had done.

He was held in 2017 and told police: “I know what I have done is wrong, but you cannot go back.”

Reilly, of Castlemilk, was also placed on the sex offenders’ register

Lord Mulholland told him: “You have pled guilty to two very serious charges.

“Be under no illusion, this will result in a prison sentence of some length.”
