Local man, 27, accused of arranging to meet child for sex

Forfar Sheriff Court

A man has appeared before a sheriff charged with child sex offences.

Jamae Boyd, 27, appeared at Forfar Sheriff Court facing two charges.

It is alleged Boyd arranged to meet a person he believed to be a child aged under the age of 16 with the intention of engaging in unlawful sexual activity.

He faces a second charge of causing a child to look at a sexual image and indecently communicating with a child.

Boyd, of Arbroath, made no plea to the two charges on petition during a brief private hearing.

The court case was continued for further examination.

Boyd was released on bail meantime.

A Police Scotland spokesman said: “Police Scotland can confirm that a 27-year-old man from Arbroath has been arrested and charged with online offences.”
