Evil Fife rapist convicted over spree of sex attacks on victims as young as four
A vile violent rapist convicted of abusing victims as young as FOUR in Fife has been jailed for eight years.
Monster Kenneth Watt was locked up after admitting to rape, assault, and sexual assault over a 27 year period.
The beast even lunged at a female officer while being questioned about his string of attacks and assaulted her.
Sick 47-year-old Watt had to sign the sex offenders register for life as well as spending eight years behind bars.
We told you how the monster was absent from the dock when jurors at the High Court in Edinburgh convicted him of brutalising his victims
It comes after multiple brave victims came forward to say the beast had attacked them between 1989 and 2016.
Officers from Fife’s Domestic Abuse Investigation Unit began to investigate Watt in February 2016 after he was identified as a serial offender in violent crimes against women and children.
He was arrested and subsequently charged in June 2016.
Watt preyed on a four-year-old girl and forced her to suffer violent physical and sexual assaults between February 1990 and February 1997.
Between June 2004 and June 2007, the sex beast repeatedly assaulted a woman who also cannot be named for legal reasons.
She told the court she was physically and sexually abused and raped on one occasion in late 2005 in a derelict building in Kirkcaldy’s East March Street.
She told jurors: “He told me he was going to stab me. I was scared. I was very scared.
“I said ‘please no, please no, not here. Not like this.”
But the court heard how Watt ignored her pleas.
He then repeatedly battered another woman between July 2013 and December 2015
Lord Brailsford, deferring sentence for the court to obtain reports into Watt’s character, added: “I have never conducted a case in 11 years on the bench in which an accused person has been absent from proceedings.”
Lord Brailsford said Watt’s latest convictions showed that there had been an “escalation” in his offending behaviour.
Detective Inspector Hannah Morrison of Fife Division’s Domestic Abuse Investigation Unit said: “We welcome the sentencing today of Kenneth Watt who subjected the victims to abuse over a long period of time.
“He has received an Order for Lifelong Restriction due to the risk he poses to the community and will only be considered for release at the end of the sentence when authorities are entirely satisfied that it is safe to do so.
Sex beast attacked women and children
A man responsible for a series of domestic abuse and sexual offences carried out over a 37-year period against multiple women and children in Fife has today been convicted.
At Edinburgh High Court, Kenneth Wayne Watt (46) was found guilty of rape and other sexual offences.
Watt of Kirkcaldy, had earlier disrupted proceedings by shouting from the dock.
This forced judge Lord Brailsford to adjourn his trial for 24 hours.
He then sacked his lawyer and told his new legal representative that he wouldn’t be present in court to hear his victims tell the court of how he abused them.
Lord Brailsford then gave permission for the trial to go ahead.
Officers from Fife Domestic Abuse Investigation Unit began to investigate the 46-year-old in February 2016 after he was identified as a serial offender in violent crimes against women and children.
Several women disclosed that they were the victims of a number of crimes committed by Watt during the period of 1979 to 2016.
Jurors heard how he repeatedly physically abused his first victim between February 1988 and October 1997.
The court heard how he repeatedly raped the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, on various occasions between February 1988 and November 1994 at locations in his home town.
Watt, who has several previous convictions for dishonesty, then started preying on a girl aged four, subjecting her to violent physical and sexual assaults between February 1990 and February 1997.
Between June 2004 and June 2007, Watt also repeatedly assaulted another woman, who also cannot be named for legal reasons. He also raped her in late 2005.
Watt then repeatedly battered another woman between July 2013 and December 2015.
The majority of the offences took place within the Kirkcaldy area of Fife.
While in custody he also assaulted a female officer who was interviewing him before refusing to provide her colleagues with his fingerprints and a DNA sample.
