A man of the United Kingdom, was found guilty of horrific crimes against young children including a 1-day-old baby.
The pedophile was convicted of raping the baby boy hours after he was born.
37-year-old Stuart Young abused the newborn until he was 3 months old, the High Court in Scotland heard.
Young was convicted of two counts of rape and one of sexual assault for the rape of 3 young children.
His second victim was a young girl, who he began to abuse when she was only 6 months old. This abuse continued until the victim was 5 years old.
His third victim was a 9-year-old girl.
Young has been informed by the court to expect a long prison sentence when he is sentenced later this month at the High Court in Edinburgh.
Judge Paul Arthurson called the crimes “truly depraved and despicable.”
Young was found guilty after a week long trial. It took jurors only two hours to find him guilty of two counts of rape and one of sexual assault.
Jurors were excused from service for the next five years because of the disturbing nature of the offenses.
