A teenager turned himself in to police after raping an elderly woman.
The 19-year-old man of the United Kingdom, raped a 91-year-old woman, and then surrendered to police.
Kriss Strachan of Bellshill, Lanarkshire, was sentenced to 12 years in prison for raping the elderly woman last July.
The teenager and turned himself in to police after his mother learned of the incident.
Strachan said that he was ashamed of what he had done.
“It was me. I cannot believe I did it. I’m scum,” he told the officer after surrendering.
The old woman was seriously injured in the attack, but the greatest damage was done to her mental state.
Before the assault, the woman was described as active and independent, but now she is withdrawn.
After 12 years in prison, Strachan will be monitored for the next seven years.
Judge Lord Boyd told the teenager that he did the right thing by turning himself in to police as he poses a “significant risk to the public, particularly older women.”
The judge said that he hopes the young man will one day understand the full gravity of what he had done and the pain, suffering and humiliation he inflicted on the elderly woman.
