A SEX attacker who raped a teenager because he wanted “five minutes of fun” has been jailed for six years. 

Ramsay Morris,26, pounced on the 15-year-old girl, who cannot be named, at a house in Renfrew in 2010. 

The High Court in Edinburgh also heard yesterday how Morris also attempted to rape a woman and sexually assaulted another 14-year-old girl in 2011. 

He was brought to court after his victims found the courage to tell police about what had happened. 

Morris, of Paisley Road, Renfrew, was convicted of rape, attempted rape and sexual assault charges following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow. 

Sentence had been deferred for the court to obtain background reports on Morris’s character. 

Yesterday, Judge Michael O’Grady QC heard how Morris had  Asperger syndrome - which defence advocate Joseph Barr said affected his client’s behaviour.

However, Judge O’Grady told Morris the only suitable sentence available to him was jail. 

Judge O’Grady said: “I have listened to everything that has been said on your behalf. 

“However, the offences you committed demonstrate you used guile and planning in the commissioning of these offences. 

“The women you targeted were young and vulnerable and you used them quite cynically. That is what is so concerning. 

“The sentence of the court will be one of six years.”

During proceedings last month, prosecutor Michael Meehan QC told jurors of the circumstances surrounding the rape attack. 

He said: “There was no one in the house at the time. He stated that he wanted ‘five minutes of fun’. He then unbuttoned his trousers and the girl said no.”

The court also heard how Morris said to his young victim: “Have you never done this before? Well, you have now.”

Morris wept as he was remanded in custody. As he was led handcuffed to the cells, Morris shouted: “Why? I did not do anything wrong.”

Yesterday, the court heard Morris denied telling a social worker, who had been commissioned to write a report about his character, that he ‘hated’ his victims. 

The court also heard Morris told the social worker he had “disdain” for the justice system.

Mr Barr told the court Morris was a first offender. 

He added: “Mr Morris has been an upstanding and respected citizen in the time since these crimes were committed.”
