Help for crime writer?
Sep 22nd, 2014 at 12:54am

I hope someone here can help me.

I am in the final stages of writing a crime novel (set in Edinburgh), and I would like to be accurate regarding applicable Scots law.

The scenario: A large country house which is used by a very select membership for sexual encounters. However, the house has one wing which is used by a paedophile group.

The questions I have are, what law would be used against (a): anyone in the wing? (b): the owner of the whole house? (I assume he would have a ‘duty to know’ what was happening), and (c): could anyone found in the ‘main’ house be charged with anything?

As something of a supplemental question to (c), given that the activity in the ‘main’ house is legal, if there was ‘recreational drug’ paraphernalia found (not on a person, but in the ‘main’ house), could all people be charged? And, if so, under what law?

Any help in this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
