Inverness Multiple Rapist Jailed for 15 Years

Once dubbed by some Highland Councillors as “no finer ambassador for Inverness”, street peddler and “musician” Kim Avis aka Kim Gordon aka Kim Vincent or “Kem” has been sentenced to 15 years in prison

Avis raped and molested victims during a decade-long campaign of sex crimes in the Scottish Highlands.

A judge told him at the High Court in Edinburgh: “You then effectively went on the run before US Marshals, unpersuaded that you were dead, tracked you down in Colorado.”

Lord Sandison added: “You were for many years a very well-known street trader in Inverness, busking and selling jewellery from your market stall.”

The judge said that as he understood it, Avis had even received “some sort of good citizen award”.

But Lord Sandison said there was another side to him and the author of a background report prepared on the sex offender had described him as “a controlling and dominant personality”.

He was found guilty of a total of 13 offences of rape, attempted rape, sexual assault and indecency.

He was also found guilty of failing to appear at the High Court in Edinburgh in March, 2019, for proceedings in the case. He was detained in the US in July that year.

Lord Sandison jailed Avis for 12 years for the sex crimes he committed and imprisoned him for a further three years for failing to appear in court.

The judge said of the latter decision: “I regard this as a very serious example of the offence.”

Avis has also been placed indefinitely on the sex offenders’ register.

Police Scotland praised his victims for the “courage, strength and dignity” they had shown throughout the investigation and court case.

Inverness councillors described Avis, born in Newmarket, Suffolk, as a “city institution”. One added there was “no finer ambassador for the city”.
