A T in the Park security officer has been ordered to complete 180 hours unpaid work after sexually assaulting a teenager at the festival.
Security staff member Allan Freedman exploited the 17-year-old by kissing and groping her after she had sought help when becoming detached from her friends.
The 44-year-old had his name added to the sex offenders register after admitting carrying out the attack on the girl.
Depute fiscal Carol Whyte told Perth Sheriff Court that the girl had been with a group of friends at the festival but they had become separated from each other on July 10.
The girl thought they would be in the Slam tent so she found a member of staff Freedman and asked him for directions on how to get there.
Ms Whyte told the court it was clear from the fact Freedman was wearing a high-visibility vest that he was part of the official security team for the site at Strathallan Estate.
She said Freedman led her towards the tent she was looking for, before stopping and groping her as well as kissing her repeatedly on the face and lips.
Ms Whyte said the girl, who cannot be identified for legal reasons, was “terrified” as a result of Freedman’s behaviour and the police were called in.
Freedman, of Capelrig Street, Thornliebank, Glasgow, admitted sexually assaulting the girl by handling her knee and waist and repeatedly kissing her on the face and mouth without consent.
Sheriff Lindsay Foulis heard that Freedman had worked in security on a part-time basis for two and a half years.
Solicitor David Holmes said that his client, who could not explain his actions which he described as a lapse in judgement, had lost his job as a result of the offence.
Sheriff Foulis also placed Freedman on probation for one year.
Freedman’s attack was one of a number of incidents recorded at the music festival as serious and sexual assaults reached record levels during the 2015 event.
There were six serious assaults at the 2015 event, compared to one in each of the festival’s previous three years.
Chief Superintendent Eddie Smith’s report said that petty assaults rose from 15 to 36 and there were 11 crimes of threatening behaviour
