Rape man to be sentenced

A MANCHESTER man, now living in Hawick, has admitted two counts of rape and will be sentenced later this month.

Roy Morrison, 65, appeared at Manchester Crown Court on April 11, and pled guilty to the charges which took place between February 1984 and February 1985.

At an earlier hearing, he also admitted two counts of indecent assault and two counts of indecency with a child, between February 1981 and February 1983.

The case has been adjourned for reports until May 27 when Morrison will be sentenced.
