Fury as paedo who had sex with underage girl living in flat near Stirling school

A sex predator who went to a hotel to have sex with a underage schoolgirl is living in a council flat near a school.

Jon Sneddon, 19, also repeatedly hounded a girl of 12 for naked selfies and targeted a third youngster.

But one local source told of their fury after the pervert was placed near a primary in Stirling while he awaits sentencing.

They said: “It’s absolutely disgusting. This guy is a predator.

“He’s dangerous and should be nowhere near schools.

“If he gets his hands on another wee lassie, somebody will have an awful lot of explaining to do.”

Sneddon pled guilty to targeting three girls at Falkirk Sheriff Court in July.

He admitted engaging in sexual activity with the teen, then aged 14 or 15, at the Old Killearn Hotel near Stirling from March to May last year.

He was also convicted of hounding the 12-year-old on a messaging app between July and August 2018.

And he admitted sending sexual images to a girl of 13 from January to May this year.

Sentencing is next month.
