Predatory paedophile jailed after abusing two young boys

A predatory paedophile who targeted and abused two young boys has been jailed

Frederick Thomson, 59 years old of Morris Moodie Avenue, Stevenson appeared at the High Court in Glasgow, where he was sentenced for:

  • Four counts of Lewd, Libidinous practices and behaviour against a male aged under 13

  • One count of Lewd, Libidinous practices and behaviour against a male aged under 16

The court was told that Thomson had denied the offences, which forced the victims to give evidence against him in court

Thomson’s offending took place on multiple occasions in Glasgow and within the Drumchapel area of Glasgow over a 12 year period beginning in 1975 and ending in 1987 against two boys

The offences included Thomson molesting the boys, by sexual touching their private parts.

Thomson exposed himself to the boys on multiple occasions and digitally penetrated one of the boys with his finger, which resulted in Thomson ejaculating over the body of one of the victims

The abuse escalated to penetrative sexual intercourse of the anus. 

The judge sentenced Thomson to a total of eight years imprisonment. He must also register as a sex offender for life.
