Scotsman.com News - Latest News - Author Jailed on Child Sex Charges

William Mayne has been sentenced to two and a half years in jail. But he wishes to retract his 'guilty' plea, claiming it was made under duress, and has vowed to clear his name.

Mayne, a divorcee, issued a statement after sentencing through his solicitor Mark Harrison saying he intended to appeal as his guilty pleas had been entered while he was "under huge stress and pressure".

Mr Harrison added: "He will endeavour to withdraw the convictions, clear his name and restore his professional and personal reputation."
