A PERVERT has been jailed for sexually assaulting a four-year-old boy while he was banned from being around children.

Stephen Cloake, 50, molested the young boy at an address in the city in February, the High Court in Edinburgh heard.

He was jailed for seven years today after a judge heard that Cloake had committed a similar offence in England and was banned from spending time with children.

Cloake, originally of Manchester, was convicted of the sexual assault following a trial at the High Court in Livingston last month.

The court heard how the boy’s 36-year-old mother had taken Cloake home after meeting him in a Capital pub on February 23

The court heard that after she put her children to bed she had sex with Cloake and fell asleep.

When she awoke, she found her young son in a distressed state. When she asked him what was wrong, he told her that Cloake had sexually abused him.
