A horrible story from the Scottish Daily Record:
A GIRL is ready to sue a paedophile who abused her for his £40,000 Star Wars toy collection.
Foster carer David Leggatt, 59, was jailed for eight years last month for sex attacks on two children.
One victim – aged three when Leggatt tried to rape her – plans to sue the beast.
Her dad said: “Leggatt betrayed our trust and destroyed my little girl’s childhood.
“He was obsessed with his Star Wars and Star Trek figures and models and had every single one, still in the original packaging.
“Leggatt was always boasting about how much they were worth and often said they’d reach at least £40,000 from collectors.
“With good behaviour, he’ll be out of jail in five years, which is no proper punishment for the disgusting things he did to those kids.
“I’m determined to make sure that, when he comes out, he’ll be left with nothing. So we’ll be pursuing his beloved collection as well as his house.
The family’s lawyer, Cameron Fyfe, said: “We’re taking the highly unusual step because the victim’s family believe the taxpayer should not shoulder the entire burden for the terrible crimes Leggatt committed.
“We’ll be pursuing his assets, including his Star Wars collection. We’ll do everything we can to ensure his victim has a decent future.”
