A 79-YEAR-OLD wheelchair-bound pensioner has been put on the sex offenders' register for incidents involving two female care workers.

David Seaman asked one young woman to go to bed with him and slapped another on the buttocks.

Seaman, of Joe Temperley Wynd, Lochgelly, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court in his wheelchair.

He admitted that between January 1 and December 9, 2020, at his home, he communicated indecently with a female and made sexualised comments towards her.

He also admitted that, between the same dates, he sexually-assaulted a female by slapping her on the buttocks.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said Seaman had been warned about his behaviour a few times before the matters were reported.

She said the first charge involved Seaman making comments to a 23-year-old care worker.

These remarks included asking the young woman if she wanted to go to bed with him. He also asked her if she would give him a kiss.

The second incident saw Seaman slapping a 24-year-old worker on the backside as she tried to assist him.

When the matter was reported to the police, Seaman admitted: “I slapped her on the a***.”

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said his client was a first offender and the comments had started off as “interaction and banter”.

He said that his client’s care package had been withdrawn after the incidents and Seaman’s wife had to look after him until new arrangements were put in place.

Sheriff Francis Gill called for reports and put Seaman on the sex offenders' register. He will be sentenced on August 3.
