Sick re-offending Fife paedo finally locked up
A Fife paedo, who downloaded more than 1000 indecent images including the rape of small children, was finally jailed today.
Allan McMeikan repeatedly changed his story about how the filth ended up on his phone but even his own solicitor conceded the claims were untrue.
McMeikan initially claimed he had not downloaded the images but an expert brought in by the defence said he had.
The sick perv already had a previous child sex offence for filming young girls.
McMeikan (51), of Durie Gardens Cottage, Leven, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.
He previously admitted that between 12th March and 7th December 2017, he downloaded indecent photographs of children.
Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia told the court that when McMeikan’s mobile phone was examined he was found to have 1002 indecent images of children.
There were 217 in the most serious category ‘A’. There were also 221 in category ‘B’ and 564 in category ‘C’.
When questioned by police McMeikan could give no explanation of how the images were on his device.
Sheriff Charles MacNair pointed out that the images viewed by McMeikan included the rape of young children. He jailed him for 14 months.
