The delivery driver denied the allegations and stood trial over four days at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last month where a jury eventually found him guilty of both charges.

John Ramsay Henry Scott (60) assaulted one victim by placing his hand under her clothing and touching her vagina on several occasions between August 2012 and September 2015. Scott also exposed himself to the woman within a vehicle and at his Barleyknowe Terrace home.

And he sexually assaulted a second woman by placing his hand under her clothing and touching her breast while she was asleep at his home in April 2017.

The delivery driver denied the allegations but was found guilty last month. Sheriff Wendy Sheehan sentenced him to two years in prison. He will also be on the Sex Offenders’ Register for 10 years.​​​​​​
