Rapist jailed for approaching women in Inverness

A convicted rapist has been jailed for three years after threatening to kill two women in Inverness.

Stephen Stewart, 46, was found guilty of breaking the terms of a court order banning him from approaching unaccompanied women at their homes.

In 2005, he was jailed for eight and a half years for rape.

A two-day trial at Inverness Sheriff Court heard that in June this year he behaved in a threatening manner towards the women.

Stewart, formerly of Inverness, had his sentence backdated to 26 June when he was remanded to Barlinnie Prison.
