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.”
