A PERVERT out on bail waiting sentencing for sharing indecent images with a child was caught with three children at a Glasgow soft play.

Robert Gibson was having his ankle tag checked when security bosses spotted him talking to a woman of 31.

The woman mentioned that Gibson had met her three children, aged nine, five and one on three occasions.

Between November 1, 2018 and April 7, 2019 the 41-year-old met with the children at a house and then at a soft play centre in Glasgow.

He was never unsupervised with the children, Glasgow Sheriff Court heard.

The court was told Gibson, from Paisley, met the woman online and became friendly with her through chatting together.

When police arrested him, Gibson said: "I done it. I now realise I was wrong.

"I miscalculated my convictions."

Before his arrest, Gibson had been in full time employment but, his defence brief told the court, he lost his job.

The lawyer said: "Before [these events] he had lived a blameless existence and he has had a spectacular fall from grace.

"He now finds himself serving a lengthy custodial sentence."

Gibson had been sentenced at Paisley Sheriff Court for sending indecent images to a child under the age of 16.

He was given 15 months in prison for the crime.

While on bail he had been prohibited from having "contact of any kind with any child under the age of 16 other than as is inadvertent and not reasonably avoidable in the course of lawful daily life."

At Glasgow Sheriff Court, Sheriff Barry Divers said: "I have listened to what has been said on your behalf.

"What my attention has been drawn to, I take a very serious view of this breach of bail.

"Conditions were put in place to protect children and you breached those conditions of bail."

Gibson was sentenced to 96 days in prison to be served consecutively to his current jail term.


This was reduced from 182 days given Gibson's guilty plea.
