Firefighter raped little girl after she was rescued from blaze

A firefighter raped a young girl after she had been rescued from a blaze at her house.

John McGinn, 56, attacked the nine year-old then told her to keep quiet or he would kill her mum.

A jury heard how he also raped and abused a woman he once dated - leaving her feeling like "a piece of garbage".

McGinn, who went on to batter another young girl, branded the allegations downright lies.

He told detectives probing the abuse: "I would rather put a bullet in my own head."

But he was convicted of six charges including rape as well as lewd and libidinous conduct after a trial at the High Court in Glasgow in June.

McGinn lived in the same area and knew the child and her family.

The youngster's mum was rushed to hospital suffering from smoke inhalation while the nine year-old was taken to her gran's house to be looked after.



McGinn later turned up at the house and it was there he pounced on the traumatised child.

He initially pretended they were playing a game called King of the Castle.

But, while alone, he attacked her.

The victim, now aged 30, said: "I told him to stop. He said if I told anyone he would kill my mother."

McGinn, who also worked as a bouncer, was held by police almost 20 years later after the woman plucked up the courage to report her ordeal but McGinn insisted the rape never took place.

After the verdict in June, Judge Lord Bonomy told McGinn: "You have been found guilty of a monstrous catalogue of physical and sexual abuse of a woman and two young children.

"There is no explanation that could excuse what the jury has found you guilty of.

"The sentence will inevitably be a lengthy prison sentence."
