Up­skirt perv avoids prison

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

AN fetishist who took hun­dreds of pictures up women’s skirts has avoided jail.

John Paul Gar­land, 51, was caught with images he had taken on his mo­bile phone in pub­lic places.

He took pictures and videos of women’s bums and up their skirts while on es­ca­la­tors, buses – and even at a wed­ding.

Gar­land, of Cum­ber­nauld, ap­peared at Glasgow Sher­iff Court for sen­tenc­ing af­ter plead­ing guilty to record­ing an im­age of gen­i­tals, but­tocks and un­der­wear of un­known fe­males.

His so­lic­i­tor told the court his client had fully co­op­er­ated with po­lice.

Gar­land must carry out 275 hours of un­paid work within six months.

He will also be un­der the su­per­vi­sion of a so­cial worker for two years and be on the Sex Of­fend­ers reg­is­ter for a pe­riod of five years.
