A Fife man threatened to post intimate pictures of a former partner around three towns following a break-up.
Drew Clark, 25, of Dick Crescent, Burntisland, admitted sending a comprising photo of the woman engaged in sexual conduct to his friend, before threatening to print pictures and put them up around Lochgelly, Leven and Glenrothes with the intent to cause her fear, alarm or distress in a revenge attack.
Appearing at Kirkcaldy Sheriff Court, Clark admitted the offences, which happened between March 23 and April 11 at Dick Crescent and elsewhere.
Clark denied a charge of observing or recording the woman involved in a private act without her consent on March 23, and this was accepted by the Crown.
The court heard how Clark became involved in a sexual relationship with the woman earlier this year, and the pair returned to his address in Burntisland on March 22.
During the course of that visit, intimate photos were taken by Clark, and a short time later the woman realised he had sent one of the photos to a friend via Facebook.
The woman declined an invitation to go back to Clark’s house, and subsequently blocked Clark on Facebook and did not reply to messages.
Five days later, Clark was able to contact the woman through Snapchat and asked why she was ignoring him.
He became angry and threatened to print the pictures and post them around Lochgelly, Leven and Glenrothes.
Depute fiscal Nicola Gillespie said the episode had left the woman “feeling distressed” and she called police.
Clark admitted sending one image but claimed he had no intention of carrying out his subsequent threats, adding he had only done it to “get his own way”.
Sentence was deferred until July 10.
