Have your say

A pensioner has appeared in court accused of recording a sexual conversation with a five-year-old girl.

Andrew Yeaman (72) is alleged to have chatted to the youngster about girls’ underwear and asked her about boyfriends while taping the discussion.

Yeaman, formerly of 30 Stoneybank Place, Musselburgh, is also said to have recorded a second similar conversation with a 13-year-old girl during a separate incident.

Both offences are believed to have taken place at the OAP’s home between January 1, 2012 and January 16, 2013.

The pensioner appeared in person at Haddington Sheriff Court last Wednesday and the case was continued without plea.
