Scottish trans pedo who kidnapped, sexually abused 11-year-old girl seeks reduction of 20-year prison sentence

A trans-identified male who kidnapped and sexually abused an 11-year-old girl in Scotland asked a court on Friday for a sentence reduction on his 20-year prison term. Reduxx reports that Andrew Miller, who calls himself Amy George, argued that the prosecution had "placed too much weight" on his transgenderism.

He was arrested in February last year after he abducted an 11-year-old girl "while dressed in female clothing," according to the Edinburgh High Court. He reportedly offered her a ride home and then took her to his house and locked her in his bedroom. Miller repeatedly sexually abused the child, forced her to watch pornography and "fetish videos," and told the victim he was her "new family."

Police found CCTV footage that confirmed Miller had abducted the victim. He pleaded guilty in May to abduction, sexual assault, watching pornography in the presence of a child under the age of 13, and possessing 242 indecent images of children. He was subsequently sentenced to 20 years in prison with a probationary period of 8 years.

During his sentencing, presiding judge Lord Arthurson called out Miller's "intentions" in wearing women's clothing while approaching his victim "wicked and predatory, and clearly involved a substantial component of planning."

Miller's defense attorney Victoria Dow argued to the appeal court in Edinburgh on January 19 that "Too much weight has been attached to that factor," adding that "It is clear the appellant has experienced psychological difficulties throughout his life."

"Prior to the offense he was struggling to cope with a number of factors in his life. He was soothed by the feeling of control… No criminal justice social work report was carried out. There simply wasn’t one. The headline sentence was excessive," Dow stated.
