Interim Liberation Refused at the High Court

HMA v Frank Cairney 2019

Mr Cairney was sentenced to four years imprisonment for charges relating to sexual abuse of children at Hamilton Sheriff Court last year. Mr Cairney has not been liberated while awaiting his appeal to progress against his conviction.

Mr Cairney sought interim liberation but this was refused at the High Court of Justiciary. The basis of the argument was largely on health grounds. Mr Cairney is one of four men for the same former football boys club to be charged with abuse offences. Mr Cairney is expected to proceed with his appeal against sentence and conviction.
