A 25-year-old man has been accused of sending a photo of his penis to a 15-year-old girl.

Douglas Gee, now living in Galashiels, denies the offence which is said to have happened at a house in Hawick on January 20.

He pleaded not guilty to the charge of sending her a picture of his exposed penis knowing her to be under 16 for the purpose of obtaining sexual gratification or humiliating, distressing or alarming her.

A trial date has been fixed for June 13 at Selkirk Sheriff Court with an intermediate hearing on May 27.
