Fife sex offender caught again with sick images
A Fife man has been caught with sick indecent images of children for a second time.
Officers executed a search warrant at the Glenrothes home of Andrew Leitch.
Electronic devices were seized and the child porn images found, one involving an infant.
After initially denying the offences, Leitch later admitted to police he had a sexual interest in children.
Unemployed Leitch (53), of Montrose Green, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He admitted that between 29th August and 25th October last year at his home he was in possession of indecent photographs of children.
He also admitted that between the same dates he downloaded indecent photographs of children.
Depute fiscal Claire Bremner said Leitch and his wife were at home when police arrived to carry out the search.
The images found included an adult male performing oral sex on a boy aged between three and five years.
There were also images of girls aged 7 to 12 in erotic poses.
Leitch initially claimed he had may have accidentally downloaded indecent images but later “said he had a sexual interest in children” added the depute.
Sheriff Charles MacNair commented, “It’s quite unusual to find a second offence of this nature which makes it very serious.”
He called for reports and Leitch will be sentenced on 25th July. He was placed on the sex offenders’ register with immediate effect.
Bail was continued but the sheriff warned Leitch, “That is no indication of what will happen at the end of the day.”
