    Man jailed for sexual offences against women in Falkirk

    Written by on September 5, 2019

    A man has been jailed for 12 years after being responsible for a range of sexual offences against women in Falkirk.

    Nikki Trice was sentenced earlier today (5th Sep) for crimes including rape and indecent assault, which took place in the town over a period of 14 years.

    Two of his victims were aged between 13 and 15 at the time.

    Following an eight-month inquiry, the 33-year-old was arrested and charged last December, before being convicted in July.

    Detective Inspector Steven McMillan, from Police Scotland’s Domestic Abuse Task Force said, “Nikki Trice is a predator and a danger to women.

    “His actions resulted in six women, two of whom were underage at the time, suffering horrendous levels of physical, sexual and emotional abuse.

    “Had it not been for the bravery of these women in providing the inquiry team with evidential statements, we might never have uncovered the extend of his offending behaviour.

    “I would like to personally thank them for their continued support of our investigation and it is my sincere hope they can now begin to move on with their lives.

    “Police Scotland is committed to bringing the perpetrators of physical and sexual violence to justice and providing victims with all the necessary support and assistance they may require.”
