Lewis Forbes was sentenced on Tuesday, June 4, 2024 at the High Court in Edinburgh to 10 years in prison.

A 34-year-old man has been jailed for sexual and violent offences, including rape and assault to injury in the Inverness and Ross-shire areas.

Lewis Forbes was sentenced on Tuesday, June 4, 2024 at the High Court in Edinburgh to 10 years in prison.

He was previously found guilty of a number of offences committed against two women between mid to late 2020 and June 2022.

Detective constable Laura Murray from the Public Protection Unit at Inverness said: “Forbes’ sickening actions had a profound effect on his victims.

“I hope that his sentencing goes some way to acknowledge this and brings them some comfort as they move forward in their lives.

“We are committed to bringing those responsible for sexual and physical abuse to justice, no matter the length of time that has passed. We work with a range of partner agencies to support victims and carry out investigations.

“Anyone with concerns or information should contact Police Scotland through 101, or contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, where anonymity can be maintained.”
