Sentence deferred for monster that abused 8-year-old

Sentencing for a depraved paedophile that sexually assaulted an eight year girl has been deferred until August

Robert Flynn, 30 of Knightswood area of Glasgow was previously found guilty of the sexual assault of a child aged under 13

The court was told that Flynn had molested an eight year old girl at an address in Hillpark, Glasgow. The child was known to him.

When the girl spoke to an adult about the abuse, he denied and lied to everyone including the police.

However, DNA evidence found in the girls knickers confirmed a match with Flynn’s saliva and when presented with that overwhelming evidence, he chose to plead guilty in the hope of a lesser sentence.

Flynn was released on bail and told to register as a sex offender with immediate effect. He will now return to court be sentenced on 14th August, 2023 and is likely to be jailed.
