Evil trans butcher Andrew Miller who kidnapped & sexually abused 11-year-old girl in 27-hour ordeal jailed for 20 years
A transgender paedophile who abducted a primary school-aged girl as she walked home and spent more than a day sexually abusing her has been jailed for 20 years.
Andrew Miller, 53, who also uses the name Amy George, was dressed as a woman at the time he offered the child – whom he had never seen before – a lift in February, in Galashiels, Selkirkshire in the Scottish Borders.
He took the girl back to his house and subjected her to repeated attacks, which a judge described as ‘every parent’s worst nightmare’.
At the High Court in Edinburgh in May, Miller pleaded guilty to charges of abduction; sexual assault; watching pornography in the presence of the child under the age of 13; and possessing 242 indecent images of children.
The court heard Miller was transitioning into a woman.
Prosecutors said the girl was locked in his home for 27 hours, during which time she was repeatedly touched, and also forced to watch pornography.
Miller claimed to have offered the youngster a lift ‘because she was freezing’, and insisted forcing her to sleep beside him in bed ‘was a motherly thing’.
The girl dialled 999 while Miller, who was wearing women’s underwear, was asleep.
She found the landline phone and called police, saying she had been touched inappropriately, the court heard.
Sentencing Miller, Judge Lord Arthurson described his crimes as “brazen and chilling” and “uniquely appalling”. He said: “The narrative was frankly nauseating in its level of depravity and criminal deviance which were ‘the realisation of every parent’s worst nightmare’.
The judge also described Miller’s presentation as a woman as a “significantly aggravating feature”. He said: “One only has to ask oneself the simple question: would an 11-year-old girl have willingly entered your car had you presented as a man? The answer is that obviously, she would not. Your intentions were wicked and predatory, and clearly involved a substantial component of planning.”
Miller, a butcher, was transitioning into a woman, the court heard. However, he has been held in the male prison estate following a row over the jailing of transgender rapist Isla Bryson, who was sent to a female prison in February.
After his arrest, three laptops were seized from his property and a total of 242 indecent images of children were found.
Lord Arthurson said: ‘The narrative was frankly nauseating in terms of its depravity and criminal sexual deviancy.
‘On your arrest you denied the abduction and preposterously said you had acted in a motherly way.
‘Abduction of young children for the purposes of sexual torment is a mercifully rare crime in this jurisdiction.’
Miller was sentenced to a 28-year extended sentence, with 20 years to be spent behind bars and a further eight spent on licence under supervision in the community.
He was also placed on the sex offenders register.
After being sentenced, he was led down from the dock with his head bowed.
