Child sex shame of star's dad.

Byline: JAMES TAIT

TRAGIC rock star Stuart Adamson's dad is facing jail on child sex charges.

William Adamson, 67, abused three children, aged between seven and 10, between August, 1997, and April this year.

Dad-of-two Adamson, of Tullibody, near Alloa, abused one girl 150 times.

He also abused her elder sister and young brother.

Adamson was caught when the children's mum overheard her desperate son telling his abuser: "Mum says you're to stop mucking about with me."

The retired naval engineer pleaded guilty to three charges of sexual abuse at the High Court in Dunfermline

He was put on the sex offender's register and will be sentenced at the High Court in Edinburgh on January 27. Judge, Lord Carloway told Adamson: "I am considering a prison sentence."

Adamson's son, Big Country singer Stuart, hanged himself in Hawaii after a long battle against alcoholism.
