Rapist Iain Long jailed for breaching court order

A man who raped a female psychologist while she lay unconscious in his Glasgow flat has been jailed again for breaching a sexual offences order.

Iain Long, 38, was jailed for five years in 2005 over the attack on the 29-year-old woman in December 2003.

A sexual offences order was imposed in July 2011 which prevented him from speaking to any lone females.

Long was jailed for 12 months at Glasgow Sheriff Court after he admitted breaching the order on 27 August 2014.

The court heard that Long spoke to a woman outside the charity shop Salt and Light in Govanhill, Glasgow.

'Protection order'

The shop is run by a church, which has a drop-in service for people with addictions or who are homeless.

Two women were working at the shop but when one went outside to smoke, Long went outside too.

He stood speaking to the woman and told her he was subject to a "protection order" and also told her his name.

Days later, after the woman was uncomfortable with what she had been told and after speaking to others, the police were contacted and Long was detained.

In December 2003, Long found his 29-year-old rape victim slumped outside a city nightspot after she had been drinking.

He took her in a taxi back to his flat in Royston, Glasgow.

She woke up during the sex attack and heard him saying "Forgive me father for I have sinned."
