A north-east man was jailed for a year yesterday after being found guilty of assaulting a teenage girl at Peterhead.

David Francome had originally been accused of assault with intent to rape, but he was convicted of a lesser charge of assault at the High Court in Aberdeen.

The jury of eight men and seven women took less than four hours to find Francome guilty of attacking a 17-year-old girl in the Clerkhill area of Peterhead on August 5.
