Peterhead rapist jailed for six years

A man who raped a woman on waste ground in Peterhead has been jailed for six years.

Edgar Sorokin was found guilty of attacking the 39-year-old in 2015.

The 24-year-old Lithuanian claimed the woman consented but was convicted of rape last month.

He was jailed at the High Court in Glasgow. Judge Lord Kinclaven said there was no alternative to a "significant" custodial sentence.
