A 24-year-old man has admitted exposing himself during an incident and later making sexually offensive comments to a paramedic.

Lee Dickson pleaded guilty at Jedburgh Sheriff Court to a total of four offences which happened in Teviot Road in Hawick, on March 31.

He admitted behaving in a threatening or absuive manner by shouting, acting in an aggressive manner, slamming his hands on a car bonnet, punch the window of the car which contained children and challenging people to fight.

Dickson exposed himself in public and made offensive comments and then pointed to his groin area and made sexually offensive comments to a female paramedic.

He pleaded guilty to a fourth charge of struggling violently with two police officers.

Dickson also pleaded guilty to a separate complaint of two breaches of his home curfew at an address in Bongate, Jedburgh.

The court was told that despite the charges he admitted to, there was not a substantial sexual nature behind the committing of the offences.

Defence lawyer Robert More said his client had learned a hard lesson after being remanded in custody for the past four weeks.

Sentence has been deferred on Dickson - who gave a new address of Coldingham Road, Eyemouth - until September 4 for background reports.
