A 79-year-old Fife man has admitted a series of indecency offences in the 1970s and 1980s.

David Innes exposed himself to a young girl and twice exposed himself to women.

Innes, of Westfield Grove, Crossgates, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court having previously admitted three offences.

Between January 1 1975 and December 31 1981 he used lewd, indecent, libidinous practices and behaviour towards a girl who was under 12.

He also committed acts of public indecency by exposing himself to the women between January 1 1980 and December 31 1989 at an address in Dunfermline and between January 1 1988 and December 31 1989 at an address in Saline.

The second charge came after a coffee invitation to a couple’s home.

The third offence took place at a social gathering at Innes’ home.

Solicitor Alexander Flett said Innes had no recollection of the events.

“However, he did not see that any of the complainers had any reason to lie and so accepted that’s what happened,” he said.

Sheriff Craig McSherry put Innes on a community payback order with six months’ supervision.

He placed him on the sex offenders register for the same period.
