A police officer has appeared in the dock at Perth Sheriff Court to face a number of sexual assault allegations.
Police Constable Austin Barrett, 42, is alleged to have carried out attacks on two women in separate incidents during 2018.
It is alleged Barrett, an elected representative for the Scottish Police Federation, carried out one of the sex assaults in the Crieff Hydro Hotel in the run-up to Christmas.
He is alleged to have assaulted one woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, by repeatedly touching her on the bottom at the hotel between December 12 and 13.
Barrett, whose address was given as c/o professional standards, French Street, Glasgow, has served as a police officer in Fife since 2001.
He faces a charge of sexually assaulting a different woman at an address in Cardenden by repeatedly touching her leg without consent between June 3 and 26 2018.
The officer, who previously worked as a gas engineer, is also alleged to have assaulted that woman in Kinglassie during July 2018 by placing his hand inside her dress.
Solicitor Gary McIlravey, defending, told the court Barrett denied the charges.
A trial, which was scheduled for this month, was put off until the summer to allow Barrett and his legal team to prepare for the case.
