At Perth Sheriff Court, Wilson was remanded for a psychologist’s report and placed on the sex offenders register.

Sheriff Gillian Wade told him: “It is very likely, if not inevitable, that a custodial sentence of a significant period will follow and it is appropriate for this report to be prepared in the custodial setting.”
