Man sentenced for sexual offences, Dundee

Published 11 November 2019

Today (Monday 11th November) at the High Court in Edinburgh, Jamie Thom (31) was sentenced to 11 years for sexual offences against girls aged 11 and six.

The offences took place between 2014 and 2018 in Dundee.

Detective Sergeant Ross Clark of the Child Protection Investigation Unit, Tayside, said: "This was a challenging investigation due to the age of the children and the risk posed to them by Thom.

"The impact of Thom’s offending on the children has been significant, they showed exceptional strength and resilience in providing detailed accounts to investigators.

"No child should ever have to suffer at the hands of adults like Jamie Thom. Through their bravery, they have cemented Thom’s future behind bars and ensured he is no longer free to abuse anyone else.

"Today’s sentencing sends a clear message to other perpetrators that you cannot escape justice for this type of criminal behaviour.

"It is never too late to report abuse, we would ask anyone who has any concerns to contact Police Scotland on 101."
