A 52-year-old man has been sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment for rape, at Edinburgh High Court earlier today.

Hugh Wade was convicted of having repeatedly raped an eight-year-old girl from August 2008 till August 2011 in Glasgow.

He was given a 10-year custodial and supervision disposal including eight years of incarceration and two years of open release with supervision.

Hugh Wade appeared in court today after having been kept in custody in Glasgow, where the trial took place last month.

When the sentence was read by Judge Maciver a handful of people sitting in the gallery expressed sighs of what appeared to be both relief and sadness.
