A paedophile who was unable to comply with the terms of his community-based orders after being locked up for other offences has been jailed for 15 months.

Kieran Dorian, 22, of Hawthorn Grove, Ballumbie, was jailed by Sheriff Alistair Carmichael when he appeared at Dundee Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

The order had been imposed after Dorian admitted directing sexual comments towards a 13-year-old girl in McDonald’s restaurant in Reform Street in 2016 and sexually assaulting another 13-year-old girl at the same place on the same date, while on bail.

Dorian also caused a female fear or alarm by repeatedly sending her text messages and posting a handwritten note through her door before repeatedly trying to get two other females to contact her on his behalf, at houses in Broughty Ferry and Monifieth, on various occasions between 2011 and 2015.

He also attended at the female’s house unannounced and on one occasion walked beside her uninvited before posting an envelope containing a letter, pieces of paper, a stone and a piece of string through a door at her home.

Dorian then resorted to social media by repeatedly attempting to contact her using false Facebook profiles to hide his true identity.

He had been placed under supervision for three years with a treatment programme requirement and placed on the Moving Forward Making Changes programme with conduct requirements.

He had also been placed on the sex offenders register for three years but then admitted two further offences of breaching the peace in Camperdown Leisure Park on April 4 while on three bail orders.

He admitted that on April 4, at Weavers Mill Public House, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner and refused to leave the pub when asked to do so, and that, on the same date at McDonald’s restaurant in the leisure park, he behaved in a threatening or abusive manner.

Sheriff Carmichael said there was no alternative to a custodial sentence and jailed him for 15 months, placing him on the sex offenders register for seven years.
