SCOTLAND’S First Minister was unable to say whether a man who dressed as a woman to kidnap and abuse a little girl will be sent to a male or female prison.
Andrew Miller, also known as Amy George, yesterday admitted snatching the youngster.

He sexually assaulted the child, aged under 13, in his bedroom over the next 27 hours and watched porn in front of her.
A judge at the High Court in Edinburgh remanded the monster in a male jail ahead of sentencing.
SNP leader Humza Yousaf was later asked if transitioning Miller, 53, should be housed in a women’s prison.
He replied: “No, in the male estate.”
But then he added: “What you are asking me to do is make a judgement on a sentencing that is still to happen. That would be inappropriate”.
He said he was confident in Scottish Prison Service protocols, updated after other recent gender-ID rows.
The case again exposed the SNP policy allowing over-16s to “self-identify” as a different gender.
Miller, of Gattonside in the Scottish Borders, admitted abduction, sexual assault, watching pornography in the presence of the child, and possessing 242 indecent images.
He was remanded to HMP Edinburgh — a male jail.
