Rapist’s years of sex attacks
A MAN has been convicted of repeatedly raping and assaulting three women over 15 years.
Charles Cassidy, 52, was remanded in custody after he was found guilty by a jury at the High Court in Edinburgh.
His victims were abused in Musselburgh and Prestonpans for 15 years from 1984.
Detective Chief Inspector Debbie Forrester, of Police Scotland’s Domestic Abuse Task Force, said: “Cassidy is a dangerous individual who repeatedly attacked these women and caused extreme harm.
“Without the courage of his victims speaking out about their ordeals, we would not have been able to put him before the court, so I want to thank them.
“I hope they can now derive some comfort from knowing he is in prison.”
