A SERIAL sex attacker sobbed in the dock at court today as he was convicted of raping three victims.

Mark O'Donnell, 30, carried out the crimes mainly at his home in Johnstone.

He had denied the allegations during a trial at the High Court in Glasgow.

O'Donnell sat in the dock clutching a photograph to his face and weeping as jurors found him guilty.

The attacks, which took place between 2009 and 2018, involved two women and a 16-year-old girl.

O'Donnell had been on bail during the trial but, adjourning sentencing until next month, judge Thomas Welsh told him: "Standing the verdict of the jury, I will remand you pending reports."

He was also put on the Sex Offenders Register.

After the verdict, prosecutor John Keean revealed O'Donnell had first been quizzed by police in July 2018 but was later freed.

However, after further accusations were made, the Johnstone man was charged and initially appeared in court in early 2019.

Mr Keenan added that two of the victims had written impact statements for the judge to consider before sentencing.
