Scotland's most senior legal officer has asked for a report into whether a five-year prison sentence given to a man who raped an 13-month-old baby was "unduly lenient".
Lord Advocate Colin Boyd QC's move follows anger at the sentence given to father-of-three James Taylor, who took pictures of himself raping the baby.He appeared for sentence at the High Court in Dunfermline after pleading guilty last month to raping the baby girl, indecency towards a six-year-old girl and possessing indecent images of children.
Police who raided his Grangemouth home found a powerful computer, CDs, and floppy disks containing 2,280 indecent images of children.
Most had been downloaded from the internet, but computer specialists were able to recover some horrific images of Taylor's own making which he had tried to delete.
They included graphic incriminating pictures of Taylor himself raping the baby girl, whose age at the time was estimated to be 13 months and of the six-year-old girl naked in bed.
he would have been jailed for much longer, if it had not been for a psychologist's report assessing there was only a low risk of him reoffending.
That is well f*cked up. i know this will probably bring nothing new to the variety of other anti paedophile threads, but i thought it was so screwed up i should post it anyway.
