Two vile Scots paedophiles wed in prison

TWO paedos married at the prison where they met while locked up for child sex offences.

Sex fiend James Clelland returned to prison to wed pervert Donald Main — before leaving his depraved new husband to serve out the rest of his life sentence.

Clelland, 40, tied the knot with fellow paedophile Main, 30, in a drab visitors’ room filled with flowers from the jail grounds.

Close family and friends joined the sick celebrations, tucking into a finger buffet and taking wedding snaps.

But bosses at Glenochil in Clackmannanshire were last night slammed for allowing Monday’s civil ceremony to take place where the couple met as lags caged for child sex offences.

An insider said: “It’s a disgrace they were allowed to wed.

“These two are as depraved as each other. They deserve each other.”

Describing the ceremony, they added: “Heaps of flowers were picked from the prison grounds and brought inside.

“The visitors’ room was all decked out for them and there was even a buffet laid on for after.

“Once it was over, they spent a couple of hours together with family, getting pictures taken and celebrating.”

Sources said all guests were sear­ched before being allowed into the jail.

Clelland was caged for seven years in 2006 following a decade of abuse against three children.

He was caught by teachers after trying to lure a young girl away from a Lanarkshire school in 2005.

Jailing Clelland, Lord Philip said: “These were extremely serious crimes carried out in a systematic and persistent way.”

Dad-of-two Clelland was previously married to a woman. The fiend, pictured outside his East Kilbride home, was freed from the Alloa jail in 2016.

Main, of Elgin, was jailed for life in 2013 after contacting boys aged from ten to 16 who he did not know.

Lord Uist told him at the High Court in Edinburgh: “It is plain to me you are an incorrigible sex offender and a serious danger to the public.”

Main was previously caged for 40 months after being convicted of abducting a lad of 12.

He was also sentenced to 12 months detention in 2007 after breaching a probation order through indecent contact towards boys aged 11 to 13.

The registered sex offender is to be supervised for the rest of his life
