A young man was admonished at Perth Sheriff Court after he admitted meeting three girls under the age of 16.
The court heard Martin Budge, 21, of Toutie Street, Alyth, was banned from being in the company of females under the age of 16.
However, he admitted contacting one of the girls, who was just 15.
He insisted he thought she was much older.
Depute fiscal Jim Eodanable said: “The accused travelled through to the location and was in the company of a few girls.
“One of them later posted on Facebook that she had concerns about this.”
Budge’s solicitor said the girl had posted that she was aged 19 on the social media site.
“This was the perception my client had of this girl,” he said.
“He had told the girl he was not allowed to be in the company of girls aged under 16.
“It is difficult, on a dark October night, to decide if a girl is aged 15 or 16.
“My client was remanded for this on October 20 so he has had time for a sober reflection.”
Budge admitted that he broke a bail condition between October 17 and 18 which forbade him from being in the company of females aged under 16 by doing so at Blairgowrie’s Davie Park and Riverside Park.
He also pleaded guilty to a charge that on April 22 at his home address, he shouted, swore, smashed items and furniture within his bedroom and threw a games controller into the street.
Sentencing Budge, Sheriff Val Johnstone told him he had “served his time” for the bail condition offence.
He was fined £300 for the breach of the peace.
