Sexual crime task force lead named
A FORMER Crown Office chief is to lead a task force set up to prevent sexual crime involving young people.
Justice Secretary Michael Matheson said Catherine Dyer would bring a “wealth of experience”.
The expert group was created after research showed the number of sexual cyber crimes recorded by police has soared over the past three years, with more than three-quarters of victims female and more than half under 16.
The group will bring together voices including the Scottish Youth Parliament, Youth Link and Rape Crisis Scotland and will first meet early next year.
