A MAN who began re-offending almost as soon as he had been given early release from jail is back behind bars.

Robert Brown sent threatening messages to his former partner.

He also sent to her sister videos of the woman performing sex acts.

Brown was angry when he was released from jail and found his ex-partner had sold all his property, Dunfermline Sheriff Court heard.

Brown, 32, currently a prisoner at Perth, admitted that between April 17-18 last year at Lochgelly, he engaged in a course of conduct which caused his former partner fear or alarm.

He phoned and sent abusive text messages to her repeatedly and made threats of violence, attended at her home, shouted, swore and made threats of violence, sent a message via a social media platform containing indecent images of her, posted derogatory comments about her on social media and sent a number of videos of her engaging in sexual acts to her sister.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said his client thought he was sending the videos to his ex-partner not her sister.

“When he was released from prison, he found out she had sold all his property against his wishes,” he added.

Sheriff Alastair Brown said sending the videos had been a “serious breach of trust”. He pointed out that the offending had started almost as soon as Brown had been released from jail.

He imposed a new prison term of 25 months.
