A per­vert who ad­mit­ted sex­u­ally as­sault­ing a woman while she slept has been locked up for two years.

Cameron Jack­son, 21, from Glass­ford Road in Strathaven, was also placed on the sex of­fend­ers’ reg­is­ter for 10 years by Sher­iff Thomas Millar.

Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court pre­vi­ously heard that Jack­son had a pla­tonic re­la­tion­ship with the vic­tim.

Fis­cal de­pute Im­ran Bashir told the court that the vic­tim was wo­ken in the early hours of the morn­ing by a phone call from a drunken Jack­son ask­ing if he could stay.

De­spite the vic­tim ini­tially say­ing no as she was feel­ing un­well, she changed her mind and Jack­son turned up at her door a short time later.

Mr Bashir went on: “The com­plainer there­after got into the woman’s bed un­der the du­vet with his jeans and T-shirt on and the com­plainer lay on top of the du­vet cov­ered with a fleece blan­ket and wear­ing her py­ja­mas.

“The com­plainer fell asleep but awoke some time later feel­ing dis­com­fort in an in­ti­mate area.

“The ac­cused had in­serted a fin­ger into her and as soon as she be­came aware of what was hap­pen­ing she was in a state of shock.

“The com­plainer asked the ac­cused why he did what he did while she was sleep­ing and he replied: ‘I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I didn’t know if you were asleep or not – you are never go­ing to trust me again’.

“The com­plainer sent the ac­cused to the couch.”

Mr Bashir added there were a num­ber of text mes­sages be­tween the ac­cused and vic­tim.

Jack­son wrote: ‘I am so sorry, I don’t even know what I was think­ing,’ and in another he wrote: ‘I’m killing my­self [inside]’.

The vic­tim replied: ‘I don’t even know what to say to you – you do re­alise it’s sex­ual as­sault’.

The woman then con­tacted a friend in dis­tress and her friend called the po­lice. A med­i­cal ex­am­i­na­tion was car­ried out on the vic­tim and sam­ples taken from Jack­son who was de­tained by po­lice and charged.
