54-year-old admits lewd behaviour towards teenage girl

A 54-year-old man who admitted lewd and libidonous practices towards a teenage girl at a house in Peebles has been placed on the Sex Offenders Register.

Allan Nelson – now living in Galashiels – also pleaded guilty to inducing the girl to take part in sexual activity by giving her a camera so she could take indecent images of herself.

He admitted a third charge of having indecent images of the girl on his computer.

Sentence was deferred at Jedburgh Sheriff Court for background reports until December 11.
