The teenage rapist was sentenced to six and a half years imprisonment after being convicted of attacking girls at a flat in Lochgelly. 

Those acting on behalf of Jordan Dunn stated that the sentence imposed was excessive. He was convicted of three rape attacks on two girls and sent a sexual communication to a third underage child. The period of offending was four months when he was aged 18. 

The sentence judge imposed an extended sentence of 10 years which included a three-and-a-half-year period whereby he would be monitored in the community.

Dunn, now aged 21, appealed the length of the sentence on the basis that he should be sentenced as a young person and as a result the length should be reduced. 

However, Lord Matthews and Lady Wise who heard the appeal rejected this. Lady Wise stated: Having regard to the nature of the offending and the terms of the available reports an extended sentence was clearly justified and the length of it cannot be impugned.”

She stated that Dunn continued to deny responsibility for the rapes which he committed and that the sentence imposed was not excessive.
