A DUNFERMLINE man has appeared in court after sending naked photos to young girls, aged 14 and 15.

The girls also sent naked photos of themselves to Connor McDougall.

Police were contacted after a sister and a dad of the girls saw messages sent by him.

McDougall, 19, of Dover Drive, appeared in the dock at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on various occasions between May 1-31 last year, he caused a girl then aged 14 to look at a sexual image by sending her an image of a penis.

He also admitted he sent text and social media messages to the girl containing comments of a sexual nature.

McDougall further admitted that between February 1 and June 30 last year, he sent an image of a penis to a girl then aged 15.

He also sent written communications to the same girl and encouraged her to engage in sexual acts.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said in both cases, McDougall had sent photos of his penis to the girls and they had sent photos of their naked breasts.

In the second case, he had sent the girl a message saying he was feeling “horny”.

However, the girl’s dad found the messages on her phone and contacted the police. The elder sister of the first girl had also discovered the messages.

Sheriff James MacDonald called for reports and McDougall will be sentenced on December 4.
