VILE CRIMES: Paedophile who sexually abused actress now convicted of crimes against child in Watford

 Published on: 5th February 2022   |   By: Court Reporter   |   Category: Uncategorized

A paedophile who sexually abused an award-winning Scottish actress was today (Friday, February 4) convicted of offences against two other children, one of which was from Watford.

Colin McKissock (pictured), now 70, was jailed for three years in 2017 for offences he committed against the star, who remains anonymous, when she was aged just 11.

After reading reports of that case on the internet, a man went to Hertfordshire Police to say he had been a victim of McKissock when he was aged between 11 and 13 and was living in Watford.

A woman also told officers she had been touched by McKissock, who now lives in Northampton.

Today, the actress, giving evidence against McKissock for a second time, told a jury at St Albans Crown Court she had been groomed by McKissock who had “blindsided her by sweets.”

In the 2017 case, Ayr Sheriff’s court heard he exposed himself to her, showed her pornographic films and magazines, performed a sex act in her presence, used a sex aid, persuaded her to expose herself and perform a sex act.

He was also found guilty of indecent practises and behaviour towards a friend of hers.

McKissock, a retired bank worker and finance mangers, from Lasham Court, Bellinge, Northampton was convicted of 13 charges: eight charges of indecent assault on a male, three charges of indecency with a child and two of indecent assault on a female.

The male victim from Watford said he was aged between 11 and 13 in the early 1990s when he went to McKissock’s home after school where he found him in a dressing gown watching pornography on a television and masturbating.

He said McKissock got him to engage in sexual activity saying he was “giving him and education.”

The female victim said she was aged 12 and 13 when he touched her.

McKissock, who still denies the 1980s offences, said he never discussed sex with any of the children and did not have pornography on the television when they were present.

He said he was not sexually interested in children.

Judge Richard Foster said McKissock will be sentenced on Friday, March 18.

He said he would grant McKissock bail as an “act of mercy” so a treatment plan can be prepared for his diagnosis of cancer.

He added: “When you come back, you will be going to prison, so prepare yourself for that.”
