Callum Gordon (33) committed the crimes against three women between 2009 and 2020.

He was found guilty of nine charges, including a number of rapes and physical assaults, following a trial at Edinburgh High Court.

These crimes took place across Aberdeenshire and Aberdeen City, including at a property in Huntly.

After today’s sentencing, Detective Inspector Gordon Patullo from Police Scotland’s Domestic Abuse Task Force North described Gordon as “a very dangerous individual”.

He also praised the three victims for their assistance with the case, claiming their accounts were “absolutely crucial” in bringing Gordon to justice.

“Callum Gordon is a very dangerous individual and today he is facing the consequences of his despicable behaviour,” DI Patullo said.

“The testimony of the three victims was absolutely crucial to unravelling his crimes and building such a compelling case against him and I hope they will now feel a sense of closure and be able to move on with their lives.

“I hope this outcome sends a clear message that Police Scotland will not tolerate domestic abuse in any form and takes all reports extremely seriously.

“I would encourage anyone who is experiencing this type of crime to come forward – you will be listened to, you will be supported and together we will bring the perpetrator to justice.”
