A serial sex offender has avoided jail after he admitted rubbing his groin in front of a female dog walker in Aberdeen

A serial sex offender has admitted to rubbing his groin in front of a woman, who was walking a dog in Aberdeen.
Victor Rae appeared in the city’s sheriff court yesterday to face a charge of engaging in a sexual activity in the Diamond Woods on Tullos Hill on Thursday last week.
The 45-year-old pleaded guilty to the charge.
The court heard the dog walker had spotted him and noticed he was staring at her. She initially thought he was interested in the dog, but then he began to rub his groin while continuing to look directly at her.
Police were later called to the scene and, after looking at CCTV from a nearby business, identified Rae and later cautioned and arrested him.
Rae, whose address was given as School Avenue, Aberdeen, was already on the sex offenders register after exposing himself and making obscene gestures at two young girls waiting for a bus on Provost Rust Drive in May 2011.
He also appeared in Aberdeen Sheriff Court in November 2006 when he admitted to sending pictures of his genitals to an 11-year-old girl and also exposing himself indecently to her and a 14year-old friend.
Sheriff Morag McLaughlin deferred sentence to obtain a criminal justice social work report.
He will return to court on April 11 for sentencing.
