Guilty of rape

A MARRIED father with two children was convicted of raping a drunk woman in a house in Lerwick at the High Court in Aberdeen on Friday.

Michael Skindzier, aged 26, of 5 Greenfield Place, Lerwick, was remanded in custody and will be sentenced on 23 June.

A majority of jurors found Skindzier guilty after a five day trial during which he admitted having sex with the woman in October 2009, but denied rape.
