A MAN has admitted abducting a schoolgirl before sexually assaulting her at his home in the Borders.

Andrew Miller, also known as Amy George, offered the girl a lift to his home in February of this year but the 53-year-old instead drove her to his own house, locked her in a bedroom and refused to let her leave.

He then subjected her to a series of sexual assaults over the course of a day.

The court was told Miller is in the process of transitioning before he pleaded guilty to the charges at the High Court in Edinburgh.
