Ross McGeachie (21) messaged the girl, sent her pornographic pictures, repeatedly sent her sexual messages, and turned up at her home in Falkirk.

At Stirling Sheriff Court, McGeachie, of Solway Drive in Denny pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a minor and sending her sexual images and messages.

The court heard that the grooming of the girl and the other incidents took placed between April 7 and 15 last year.

Sheriff Wyllie Robertson called for background reports, and deferred sentence until July 17, when the Crown will narrate the facts.

He released McGeachie on bail, but warned him: “All options are being considered, including custody.”
