Sexual Predator Sentenced to Three Years
At the High Court in Glasgow, Sean McCuaig was sentenced to three years following an investigation by officers from the National Child Abuse Investigation Unit.
Commenting DCI Sarah Taylor said:
“This was a complex investigation which began in March 2017 and involved the NCAIU working alongside officers with cyber-crime expertise.
“Sean McCuaig preyed on his victims and used social media to target and exploit them for his own sexual gratification with no consideration for the devastating impact that his offending had on his victims and their families.
“I would like to pay tribute to his victims’ bravery in coming forward.
“Their testimony was crucial in bringing McCuaig to justice.
“His sentencing sends a clear message to perpetrators of online child sexual abuse that there is no hiding place on the internet.
“There is no anonymity and we will track down those who offend online.
“We also hope this sentencing provides children and young people the confidence to ask for help if they are concerned about anyone’s behaviour online.
“Everybody should have the confidence to enjoy the benefits of internet platforms and social media and know that they can turn to police if they feel threatened or are subjected to inappropriate communications.”
