A SELKIRK man has been convicted of assaulting a woman following a jury trial at Jedburgh Sheriff Court by removing her leggings and lower underwear.

Andrew Wiseman was found guilty of the offence while the woman, now 29, was lying intoxicated face down on a bed in his Anderson Road home in December 2016.

However allegations that the 56-year-old sexually assaulted her and carried out a sex act on himself in her presence, all with intent to rape, were deleted from the charge.

Wiseman was found guilty of assault following a three day jury trial.

Sentence was deferred until October 18 for the production of background reports.
