A PAEDOPHILE who worked as a school cleaner molested an 11-month-old baby and filmed the attack.
Police found the vile video, apparently taken on a mobile phone, after raiding the home of James Reekie, 28, and seizing the computer equipment he used to download child porn.
They traced the little girl from the one-minute, four-second film and broke the news to her family. The baby was taken to hospital but found to be uninjured.
Reekie admitted sexually assaulting the baby, an offence which counts as attempted rape under new laws.
Judge Lord Pentland said the fact he filmed the assault was “an aggravation of the utmost gravity”.
He ordered an in-depth investigation of Reekie which could see him handed a life sentence.
Reekie, of Glenrothes, Fife, also pled guilty to making indecent images of children. He downloaded porn to his own computer – and his mum’s laptop.
The computer in Reekie’s bedroom contained 215 indecent photos and 138 videos of children.
Experts also discovered 178 photos and seven videos on his mother’s laptop in the dining room. Reekie had used it when his own computer was broken.
Prosecutor Richard Goddard said the images were found after police were tipped off that someone from the home Reekie shared with his parents was looking at child porn.
Reekie, who has muscular dystrophy, denied all knowledge of the hoard and claimed someone had sent him a virus.

Then, after two hours in a cell, Reekie “flippantly” admitted he was responsible for everything on the computers. Soon afterwards, he began to cry.
Lord Pentland said he was concerned that Reekie had worked as a cleaner at Auchmuty High School
Chris Fyffe, defending, said Reekie had worked there outside school hours, but he could not guarantee there was no overlap between pupils leaving and him arriving.
Reekie was remanded in custody until December.
