A paedophile who abducted a young girl as she walked home and sexually abused her for 27 hours is appealing against his 20-year sentence.
Andrew Miller, 53, who also uses the name Amy George, was dressed as a woman when he offered the primary school-aged child – whom he had never seen before – a lift in February.
Miller took the girl back to his house in the Scottish Borders and subjected her to repeated attacks, which a judge described as “every parent’s worst nightmare”.
Earlier this month he was jailed for 20 years when he was sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh.
At the same court in May, Miller pleaded guilty to charges of abduction, sexual assault, watching pornography in the presence of the child under the age of 13 and possessing 242 indecent images of children.
The Court of Criminal Appeal in Edinburgh confirmed on Thursday that an appeal against sentence has been lodged on behalf of Miller.
