Sex offender jailed for abuse and pictures

A sex offender who had sex with a woman in the presence of a 10-year-old boy has been jailed for four and a half years.

Ryan Leisk, 32, began preying on children when he was a teenager and was found with indecent pictures after police arrested him in 2015.

He was found guilty of indecency against girls and engaging in sexual activity when a boy was there.

His crimes were committed in Aberdeen and an Aberdeenshire village.

Leisk, of Aberdeen, had denied a series of charges at the High Court in Edinburgh.

Lord Kinclaven said: “As I think you appreciate there is no alternative to a custodial sentence.”

The judge said that he bore in mind that a limited number of images were involved.

Leisk was placed on the sex offenders register.

Vile Aberdeen pervert who had sex with woman in front of 10-year-old boy unmasked after string of attacks on children

A sexual predator from Aberdeen who had sex with a woman in front of a 10-year-old boy faces jail after string of attacks on children.

Ryan Leisk, pictured for the first time, began preying on children while he was still a teenager and was even found with indecent pictures of youngsters when police arrested him in 2015.

The 32-year-old targeted his first victim when he was just 14, molesting a seven-year-old girl when she visited his house.

He encouraged the girl to sit on his knee while she watched TV and became sexually aroused.

The woman, now aged 24, said he would also hold her by the private parts when he swung her round.

She told the High Court in Edinburgh: “He tried to make it seem like fun. It was quite sore and uncomfortable.”

“I know it happened on a few occasions. I can’t remember the period of time it went on for.”

Leisk began molesting a second girl when he was 17 and she was aged 12, exposing himself and carrying out sex acts.

In another incident he called a boy, 10, into a room and began carrying out a sex act on himself and on the woman before having intercourse with her.

He was detained after the boy and a girl went to their mother and police were contacted.

Police recovered indecent images of kids from a phone and computer and discovered that some had been shared.

Messages were also sent by Leisk encouraging the woman to take part in sexual activity in the presence of the boy.

In one response the woman said: “I keep thinking this is what paedophiles do.”

Leisk, formerly of Cherry Road, Aberdeen, had denied a string of charges during a trial at the High Court in Edinburgh.

But he was found guilty of two offences of indecency against girls committed between 2000 and 2004 and engaging in sexual activity with the woman when the boy was there in 2015.

He was also convicted of possessing and showing or distributing indecent photos of children between December 2014 and October 2015 and for breaching bail.

He was acquitted on not proven verdicts of two further charges of indecency and sexual assault involving another girl.

Leisk was placed on the sex offenders register and sentenced was deferred for background reports.

The judge, Lord Kinclaven, continued to remand him in custody ahead of sentencing at the High Court in Glasgow on July 4.
