Paedophile and convicted Steven Leisk has applied to be released from prison after serving 22 years of a minimum 20-year life sentence. 

Leisk murdered nine-year-old Scott Simpson three weeks from his 10th birthday after luring him from a near his home in Aberdeen, Scotland. 

At the time, Leisk  out of prison for seven months when he gave Scott a cigarette and promised him he could play computer games.

The convicted paedophile instead led the boy to some bushes, attempted to sexually assault him and then strangled him with a scarf. 

Leisk was jailed for his crimes in November 1997 and has applied to the parole board for release on license after serving more than the 20-year minimum behind bars. 

But Scott’s family have warned Leisk may always be a danger to children and are outraged at the possibility of the killer’s application. 

Sarah, Scott’s big sister said: “My mum told us Scott looked liked the Elephant Man with severe bruising and swelling to the back of his head. 

“The worst thing of all, he had been found with his hands in front of his face, trying to protect himself from whatever Leisk was doing.

“He has never shown any remorse or given any sign that he wanted to change. 

“Even after he murdered Scott and hid his body in the bushes, he was already grooming two other boys who were with him when the police went to arrest him. 

“He hadn’t told the police or Scott’s family where our wee boy was yet, which was an added torture, and he had just committed murder, but he was already working on his next victims.

“What good could it ever do to let him loose again?”

The criminal is expected to argue his case at a hearing in November, and if successful could go free. 

Parole Board for Scotland told the Daily Record: “We can never comment on individual cases.”
