Creep offered schoolgirl £100 for sex in disgusting Snapchat message

A pervert told a 15-year-old girl that he would pay her £100 to perform a sex act on him.

Dean Scott, 21, also subjected another 15-year-old and 17-year-old to similar vile messages on Snapchat.

Scott pled guilty at Glasgow Sheriff Court to sending written sexual communication for the purposes of sexual gratification, humiliating, distressing or alarming the three teens.

Sheriff Lindsay Wood told Scott, of Rutherglen, South Lanarkshire, he was going to give him “a chance.”

Scott reluctantly accepted a three-year community payback order which includes no contact with anyone under the age of 17 without consent from a social worker.

His internet access and web enabled devices will also be under supervision.

Scott was also placed on the sex offenders register for three years.

The court heard Scott contacted added the first 15-year-old on Facebook before taking their conversation to Snapchat.

Prosecutor Mark Allan told the court the conversation was “simple greetings” at first before Scott turned the chat sexual last November and December.

Scott then made the £100 remark before sending a follow up message with his address.

Mr Allan added: “As part of that process, he said he was lying on his bed and she was just to walk in.”

Scott continued to ask for sex from the girl before being snared by police at his parent’s house.

He confessed to sending the messages after he split up with his girlfriend.

Scott was arrested, bailed and ordered not to use Snapchat.

But, three weeks later Scott contacted the other 15-year-old and 17-year-old on the app.

Scott sent a sexually explicit picture to the older teen while asking the younger to show her body.

He was arrested again and found to have breached his bail terms which he also admitted in court.

Scott shouted from the dock “I’ve made mistakes” and “I need help” during the hearing
