An Oban man appeared at the town’s sheriff court yesterday where he pleaded guilty to sending indecent messages to four different teenage girls via the Snapchat app.

Donald McCormick, 30, of The Greens, Glencruitten had his sentence deferred for background reports until September 12.

He admitted coercing a 14-year-old girl into looking at a sexual image and repeatedly sending indecent messages and photographs on various occasions between March 21, 2016 and July 9, 2017.

McCormick also admitted that on various occasions between October 1, 2016 and November 30, 2016 he coerced a 13-year-old girl into looking at a sexual image and repeatedly sent indecent messages and photographs.

On February 5, 2017 he repeatedly sent another 13-year-old girl indecent messages, while a fourth girl, aged 14, repeatedly received indecent messages from him between February 18 and 23, 2017.
