Scots pervert who sent sick videos of sex act involving kid’s clothing banned from play parks

A pervert who sent videos of himself carrying out a sex act over items of children’s clothing has been banned from playparks or anywhere designed for kids.

Martin Lipscombe took photos of a 12-year-old girl and kids’ clothing on a washing line in Edinburgh which he sent to another male.

Lipscombe and the unknown male discussed what they’d like to do with the youngster over WhatsApp messages.

The 30-year-old appeared for sentencing at the city’s sheriff court on Monday after the case had earlier been deferred for reports.

Sheriff Douglas Keir put Lipscombe on a community payback order with two years of supervision.

Lipscombe was placed on the sex offenders register for the same period.

Sheriff Keir banned Lipscombe, of the city’s Leith area, from entering the grounds of schools, nurseries, playparks or anywhere else designed for children.

The sheriff also ordered him to engage with rehabilitation programmes for sex offenders and prohibited him from communicating with under-18s.

At a hearing in June when Lipscombe pled guilty, fiscal depute Anna Robertson said police carried out an intelligence-led search of Lipscombe’s home and “several” videos were found on devices at the address

The court heard videos showed Lipscombe masturbating over an item of children’s clothing which Ms Robertson said “appeared to be a dress”.

She said the second male was seen masturbating over pictures of children wearing “gymnastic clothing”.

Lipscombe admitted taking photos of a 12-year-old girl playing in a garden and of children’s clothing on a washing line.

The court heard Lipscombe sent these images to the other male and they “discussed the child in a sexual context” including having her watch him masturbate.

Ms Robertson said cops recovered 2170 messages between the pair with 274 attachments.

Lipscombe pled guilty to threatening and abusive behaviour by sending the videos and photos between June 1 and July 1 last year.

Edinburgh paedo recorded himself performing sex acts over underage girls’ clothes

A pervert has been caught with disgusting videos of him performing a solo sex act over children’s clothing.

Martin Lipscombe, from Leith, Edinburgh, also took pictures of a 12-year-old girl and her clothing hanging on a washing line and sent the images to the an unknown male.

Vile Lipscombe then discussed having the child watch him while he masturbated over her clothing during sick conversations with the male from his capital home last year.

The 30-year-old sales assistant also sent separate footage to the third party of an unknown male masturbating over images of children.

Lipscombe was snared after police received information regarding the offences and raided his home on August 11 last year.

The beast pleaded guilty to two sexual offences when he appeared in the dock at Edinburgh Sheriff Court today.

Prosecutor Anna Robertson told the court that police officers executed the search warrant following a tip off.

Ms Robertson said: “A search was undertaken and during the examination of devices it was ascertained the accused had sent several videos of himself masturbating over female children’s gym clothing.”

The fiscal added videos were also found which “indicated the accused had taken a number of images of a 12-year-old girl playing in a garden”.

Lipscombe then sent the videos to an unknown person and 1270 messages between the pair discussing the girl in “a sexual context” were also discovered.

The court was told the male Lipscombe sent the images to is currently “unknown and untraced”.

Solicitor Paul Smith, defending, said he would reserve his mitigation to the sentencing hearing.

Sheriff Douglas Keir placed Lipscombe on the sex offenders register and deferred full sentence to August for the preparation of reports.

Lipscombe pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by sending videos of himself masturbating over children’s clothing and an unknown male masturbating over images of children to a third party from his home between June 1 and July 1, 2020.

He also admitted to taking pictures of a 12-year-old girl, and her clothing hanging on a washing line, and sending the pictures to an unknown person and discussing the child in a sexual context including discussing having the child watch him masturbate and him masturbating over her clothing on the same dates.
