A DUNFERMLINE man’s behaviour towards a woman living in his area has resulted in him being put on the sex offenders' register.

This happened when 49-year-old Paul Rogers, of Robertson Road, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on August 13 and October 2, in Robertson Road, he made inappropriate sexual remarks, swore and made threats.

Depute fiscal Mat Piskorz said Rogers had made the comments to a female neighbour.

He had then also written a crude letter to the woman about her having noisy sex with her partner and put it her through her door.

This was his response to noise complaints being made about him, the court heard.

In the first incident, at 2pm the woman was putting a bin out when Rogers had made a comment to her saying: “I would love to burst your knickers open.”

The second incident involved Rogers writing a letter to the same woman and putting it through her door.

“This letter caused a great deal of concern and the police were contacted,” added the depute.

The court was told that Rogers had meant the comment as a joke but now accepted it was inappropriate.

The letter had been in response to complaints made about the noise coming from his home.

Sheriff James MacDonald told Rogers: “These were unpleasant incidents”. He imposed a community payback order with 12 months of supervision. He also put Rogers on the sex offenders' register.
