From the Scotsman, this morning:
'Child F was abused from the age of three months by Rennie, who knew his parents and was trusted to babysit.
Rennie took photographs and videos of his abuse of Child F, and passed them on to others. On one occasion, Milligan listened on the phone to Rennie's indecent behaviour towards the boy, and spoke to the youngster as it was happening.
The other two boys, J and B, fell prey to Strachan, who had also been allowed to babysit by their parents. A photograph of Strachan committing a gross act on J, aged 18 months, became known as "the Hogmanay image" and was one of the most harrowing shown to the jury.
Strachan had been jailed for three years in 1997 for numerous acts of indecency against a boy.
Last night, LGBT Youth Scotland, which supports lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender young people, said: "We are appalled by the abuse and exploitation of children by James Rennie, and wholeheartedly welcome his conviction.
"Lothian and Borders Police have been clear that their investigations concerned Rennie personally and not LGBT Youth Scotland as an organisation. On being notified of his arrest, we acted immediately to suspend him.
"During a subsequent disciplinary process, he tendered his resignation, which we accepted.'
