Eight years for raping girl of 13

A MAN who plied a teenage girl with vodka before raping her has been jailed for eight years.

Lithuanian Vytautas Melinauskas of New Elgin, Moray, told a jury at the High Court in Edinburgh that the 13-year-old had led him on, but they rejected his claim. He was also convicted of a sex act with a 15-year-old girl.
