High Court: Fife man found guilty of rape charges
A Fife man has been found guilty of raping two girls in sex abuse dating back to the 1980s.
One of the victims told a trial she was repeatedly assaulted as a child in play areas including a tree house, a field and an abandoned house, all in Cowdenbeath.
William Walls (47), of Primmer Place, Cowdenbeath, denied all four charges he faced at the High Court in Dunfermline but was found guilty after a four-day trial.
On various occasions between 1981 and 1989, in different locations in Cowdenbeath, he used lewd, indecent and libidinous practices towards a girl.
On various occasions between 1984 and 1989 at locations in Cowdenbeath, he raped the same girl.
On various occasions between 1987 and 1991 at two addresses in Cowdenbeath, he used lewd, indecent and libidinous practices towards a second girl.
On an occasion between 1989 and 1991, at an address in Cowdenbeath he carried the same girl from her bed, placed her on a table and raped her.
Walls was remanded in custody and will be sentenced at the High Court in Glasgow on 30th June.
