A sheriff has warned an Angus man convicted of a series of sexual offences that failure to comply with special conditions will put his liberty at risk.
James Jamieson, 62, of South Kingennie, was made the subject of the three-year community payback order at Cupar Sheriff Court in October in 2012 after being convicted of three matters under the Sexual Offences Act. They related to lewd behaviour involving three different women in rural Fife.
The matter transferred to Angus but Jamieson appeared before Sheriff Kevin Veal at Forfar yesterday having admitted a breach of the order.
Allowing the order to continue, Sheriff Veal said: “If there are any additional problems within the currency of this order, notwithstanding the view taken by the sheriff in Cupar when this was originally dealt with, nothing can be ruled out.”
He also emphasised to Jamieson the importance of complying with special conditions imposed as part of the order, which include restrictions on where and when he can indulge his hobby of falconry. Jamieson has also been banned from having any contact with known sex offenders.
