​Teen sex beast jailed for four years for abusing schoolgirls as judge says females ‘need protecting’ from him

Barry Duffin’s youngest victim was just 13 years old when he had sex with her last summer at an address in Scotland.

A teenage sex pest who abused three schoolgirls – one aged just 13 – has been branded a risk to women and jailed for four and a half years.

Barry Duffin, of Argyle Street, Paisley, “wore down” two other girls, who were 14 and 15 at the time, before they gave in and allowed him to have sex with them.

His youngest victim was just 13 years and two months old when he had intercourse with her last summer at an address in Paisley.

He repeatedly engaged in sexual activity with his first victim over a two-month period between December 2014 and January 2015 at property in Johnstone.

He was sixteen-and-a-half at the time and she was two years younger, reports the Daily Record.

When this ended and he started dating another schoolgirl aged 15, he once again repeatedly had sex with her over an eight-month period between August 2015 and April, 2016.

Sentencing him, Sheriff David Pender said it was clear that the girls had not wanted to have sex with him, but he “wore them down” to the point where they gave in and “felt obliged” to cooperate with his demands.

Duffin, now 18, was said to have come from a difficult background in which both of his parents were drug users.

His mother had died at an early age from substance abuse and, suffering from ADHD, he experienced periods of low mood and bouts of self harm.

Duffin displayed behaviour that was often extreme or based on impulsiveness.

Reports presented to the court described him as someone who was immature and needing help.

Sheriff Pender told Duffin: “The public, girls and young women in particular require to be protected from you.

“In two of the instances where the girls were not wanting to have sexual relations, you in effect wore them down to a point where they felt obliged to have intercourse with you.”

The sheriff granted a five-year Non Harrassment Order to prevent him from having any contact with his three victims.

The period of detention, backdated to August 8 when he was first detained, will also have a two-year extended sentence in place for him to be closely monitored on his eventual release, which will see him returned to custody for that period if he re-offends.

Duffin, of Argyle Street, Paisley, also had his name placed on the Sex Offenders’ Register.

Teen sex beast almost killed me when I was pregnant

A victim of pervert Barry Duffin, 18, claims he battered her “hundreds of times” in just nine months, including when she was expecting.

 The creep, of Argyle Street, Paisley, was caged this week for sexually abusing her, when she was just 15, and two more schoolgirls, aged just 13 and 14.

Barry Duffin, 18, was jailed for four and a half years abusing the the girl, 15, and two others, aged 13 and 14.

A sex beast held a pregnant teen’s head under water after he was barred from a baby scan, she claimed last night.

The 16-year-old says Barry Duffin, 18, laughed and made her beg for the beating to stop.

She was one of three schoolgirls groomed by the predator and insists she feared he would beat her to death.

The victim, who cannot be named for legal reasons, also maintains he battered her “hundreds of times” in just nine months.

She says: “I had a scan coming up. I didn’t let him go.

“I got back, and he just flew for me.

“He dragged me to the toilet. He grabbed my hair and forced my head into the bath.

“He held me under the water and he was spraying me in the face with the shower.

“I thought I was going to die. I thought he was going to kill me.

“He used to tell me to beg for my life almost every time we fought.”

Duffin was branded a danger to women by a sheriff and caged this week for four and a half years for sexually abusing her when she was just 15 and two other youngsters, aged 13 and 14.

The girl maintains the creep chased her with a broken glass bottle he kept under the sink of his flat in Paisley’s Argyle Street and even thumped her with a baseball bat.

And she claims the bully would lock her in and snatch her phone to stop her calling for help.

During a row at his grandparents’ home in Johnstone she says she managed to escape, but he caught her as she tried to vault the back fence and dragged her back inside.

She added: “We met through a friend when I was off school for the holidays, and he seemed really nice.

“After a few weeks, we started seeing each other and had sex for the first time a month or so later.

“He started cutting me off from my friends and family.

“He’d hack my Facebook account and pretend to be me to start arguments with them.

“He came back from T in the Park and I found out he had cheated on me.

“A girl kept phoning him and when I asked why he wouldn’t answer, he told me about her.

“I left and he chased after me, shouting all the way down the street.

“I turned to tell him to go and he head-butted me. It was the first time he hit me.”

The girl says she returned to school, but Duffin forced her to skip classes and would threaten her and her family if she refused.

She claims he even sparked a rammy outside her mum’s Glasgow home and spat on her in the middle of the road.

And the girl says he bombarded her with menacing text messages, vowing she would be “one sorry girl” if she disobeyed him during their relationship between August 2015 and April last year.

She says that he “pulled chunks” out of her hair, forcing her to have it cut and even pleaded with her parents to move in so he could keep tabs on her.

The teen insists: “I dumped him, but he started stalking me.

“He would follow me down the street and was sending me loads of messages.

“He sent me pictures of him cutting his wrists and told me he was going to kill himself.

“I went back because I was scared of what he might do.”

Duffin was jailed at Paisley Sheriff Court on Tuesday for sleeping with the three youngsters.

His youngest victim was just 13 years and two months when he slept with her at a home in Paisley.

He repeatedly abused the 14-year-old between December 2014 and January 2015 when he was two and a half years older than her.

At Paisley Sheriff Court on Tuesday, Sheriff David Pender jailed him and told how the pervert “wore” the girls down until they “felt obliged” to fulfil his demands.

He added: “The public, girls and young women in particular require to be protected from you.”

Sheriff Pender has barred Duffin from contacting any of his three victims and placed him on the Sex Offenders’ Register.
