Scotland’s leading poltergeist expert is behind bars after being convicted of a string of sexual attacks on children

42-year-old Jason Love who claims to be a demonologist and exorcist – preyed on three boys over a 12 year time frame

The pervert targeted one victim while they were watching horror films together.

The crimes occurred between 1987 and 1999.

Love meantime went on to travel the globe doing talks and lectures on the paranormal.

This was after becoming a practicing demonologist and renowned “exorcist”.

But, Love now faces a lengthy jail term after being convicted of five charges including indecent assault and lewd and libidinous conduct.

He was remanded in custody at the High Court in Glasgow pending sentencing next month.

The attacks took place in Paisley and Renfrew, both Renfrewshire as well as a flat in the city’s Cranhill.

Jurors heard the first victim ended up[ being abused initially abused on an “almost weekly basis” for years.

Another young boy was then preyed upon including at a cemetery.

The final victim became unwell after Love targeted him.

However, Love – who is also a qualified nurse – denied the boy falling ill was in connection with any abuse.

He instead insisted the child had “indulged in too many chocolate and sweets” while watching horror videos.

Love, of the city’s Battlefield, also denied any attacks on the other boys.

He showed no emotion as he was lead handcuffed to the cells after being convicted.

A woman who had been with with him during the trial burst into tears following the verdict.

Lord Kinclaven deferred sentencing for reports.
