SICK paedophile William Rae has been booted out of the Carters after he was exposed as child sex predator.

Irvine Carters Society have revealed they have officially issued a lifetime ban to 58-year-old Rae after his string of sex crimes against young girls were exposed by the Irvine Times last week.

The Carters held their AGM on Monday (November 27) where it was decided unanimously that the sick fiend would never be involved in the organisation again.

Vile Rae, who is known as Billy, lured girls as young as 12-years-old to his stables in Stewarton to see his horses, before grooming them then eventually abusing them.

The Times revealed the former North Ayrshire bin man’s crimes date back to 2001 and had even become registered as a “Kinship Carer” with North Ayrshire Council so he could take vulnerable girls into his care and abuse them.

A spokesman for Irvine Carters Society said the organisation felt “unjustly blamed” for Rae’s vile crimes.

He said: “At the Annual General Meeting of Irvine Carters Society held last night, Monday, November 27 2017. Due process was conducted and the matter raised on the front page of the Irvine Times and also on page 9 of the paper was dealt with.

“The named member of the Society although not a paid up member was removed from the roll of members as his conduct was found to be injurious to the character, interest or good order of Irvine Carters’ Society. This means that he can no longer attend any meeting, functions or participate in the annual Marymass Parade. Also at the meeting the members felt that the headlines used in the paper were unjust. The feeling was that the main blame was laid at the Carters’ door.

“Irvine Carters Society hopes that this serious isolated case does not distract from the continuous work carried out by volunteers throughout the years, which include Senior Citizens Concerts, Fourth Port Parade, Marymass Festival and Captain’s Parade. Networking and good partnerships with local community groups. Fundraising through Carters Ceilidh, bottle stalls, dances etc. to support community involvement within the Marymass Festival. The tireless and thankless work annually by our members which has a positive impact on the Irvine community and economy in the local area, which makes The Marymass Festival one of the oldest, continuous and popular in Scotland.”

Rae was jailed at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court two weeks ago after the court heard each of his victims were the daughters of family friends who had been left in his care either at his home in James Crescent or his stables in Stewarton.

They were all aged between 12 and 15.

The court was told about a string off assaults on four girls, dating back 16 years.

In December 2010 lifelong Carter, Rae coaxed one of the girls into his lorry before forcibly pulling her clothing down to expose her private parts whilst the child pleaded with him to stop.

Another victim, age 12, was repeatedly attacked by Rae between September 2001 and March 2005.

On one occasion Rae put his hands inside her underwear and assaulted her despite being asked to stop. He also forced the child’s hands into his own underwear.

On another occasion between March 2005 and March 2006, when the same victim was 16-years-old Rae indecently assaulted her whilst she was intoxicated.

He was also charged with making sexual remarks to another child between September and December 2015.

Rae received a six year sentence at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week - split between three years jail time and three years extended sentence, meaning he will be supervised upon release.

He was also placed on the sex offenders register indefinitely.
