Underage sex offence man jailed

A man who admitted having sex with an underage girl has been jailed for a total of six years.

Raymond Lovie, 32, from Coupar Angus in Perthshire, was trapped after text messages were discovered on the 15-year-old girl’s phone.

He had previously admitted having sex with the girl between April and June.

At the High Court in Edinburgh, Lovie was told he would be supervised for eight years on his release after being told he was a danger to the public.

Judge Lord Hodge told him: “You exploited the vulnerability and naivety of a 15-year-old girl by grooming her for sex.”

Lovie, who has a record for sex offences, was also added to the sex offenders’ register.

He also admitted a charge of lewd conduct with the girl.
