Repeat sex offender who preyed on young schoolgirls while living in Cairneyhill is jailed again

A sex offender previously jailed for preying on young Fife schoolgirls on the internet, has been jailed again after being caught with indecent images of children.

When police raided his house, Graham King admitted to officers that he had “tons” of child abuse images on his devices.

Some of the sick movies were in the ‘A’ category, which covers the most serious type of material.

King, 54, from Glenrothes, and currently a prisoner at Perth, was back at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for sentencing. He was jailed there in 2010 for offences carried out when living in Cairneyhill.

Sheriff Charles MacNair said: “It seems to me on the face of it that he poses a serious threat.”

The sheriff told King: “There were the worst types of film on your devices.

“It’s happily quite rare to see repeat offending of this nature. You were previously placed on an extended sentence including supervision but that does not seem to have prevented your offending.”

He jailed King for 16 months, backdated to when he was taken into custody on April 21. This means he will be released before the end of the year.

The sheriff imposed a sexual offences prevention order for an indefinite period and King is also on the sex offenders’ register.

He previously admitted his latest offences, committed between March 13 and April 26 at Queen Margaret Drive, Glenrothes, where he was in possession of indecent images of children.

Depute fiscal Kyrsten Buist said police received intelligence about indecent images of children being accessed and inquiries led them to King’s home after obtaining a warrant.

“His wife answered the door and the accused was in the back garden,” the depute continued.

On being told why the officers were there, King said: “It’ll be me and it’ll be on that,” pointing at a tablet.

He went on: “That’s got tons on it. That’s going to f*** me.”

Indecent images and movies were found on the tablet and also on King’s mobile phone.

On the tablet, there was one category B image and 35 category C images. The phone had 23 category C images.

The tablet also had illegal movies on it, three at category A, four at category B and five at category C.

In 2010, King was jailed for a year at the same court after preying on local schoolgirls using internet chat lines and sending them indecent images via his webcam.

He told one girl that he was 18 and from Milesmark. He told the girl she was “gorgeous” and tried to get her phone number.

He admitted sending pictures of himself committing a sex act on himself to three 12-year-old girls.

One of the schoolgirls submitted a victim impact statement in which she said she was scared to leave her home after the incident and suspected every male she saw as being responsible.
