A married man who groped a teenage boy at a Steps concert in Dundee has been placed under supervision for six months as part of a community payback order.
David Buick pleaded guilty at Dundee Sheriff Court to sexually assaulting the 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, at the Slessor Gardens gig on June 22.
Buick, of Glebe Crescent, Alyth, admitted that on June 22 at Slessor Gardens, he sexually assaulted the teenager.
Buick, 47, had attended the concert with his husband and the couple were in the crowd dancing.
Both were said to have been “visibly under the influence of alcohol”.
At an earlier hearing, depute fiscal Joanne Smith told the court: “The accused said to the complainer, referring to his husband, ‘He’s a big ****, isn’t he?’.
“He then asked the complainer, ‘Are you a ****?’. The teenager replied that he was not gay and moved away from Buick.
Ms Smith added: “The accused then repeated his earlier remark about his husband.
“The accused then moved behind the complainer, wrapped his arm around his stomach, over the clothing and at that time, the complainer moved the accused’s hands away from him.
“The accused then said, ‘Stop it. You like it, you big ****’.”
The boy then felt Buick grope him, the court heard.
Buick was reported to security and he was escorted to speak to police.
