The sheriff told him that what he did was a very serious offence he said, “very serious […] and, to say the very least, a highly unpleasant one”. The sheriff also mentioned that the severity of his crime was the worst of all as he had assaulted the teenager in her own home and repeated his history of sexual offenses.

Lamond admitted his crime that he committed on May 10 this year. The reports for Lamond’s assault mention the assault in the 14-year-old’s home involved Lamond looking inside her clothing and touching her breast.

His sentencing has outraged many.

According to the reports Lamond was sentenced in Dunfermline Sherriff Court, also a community payback order was placed to supervise Lamond under a restriction of liberty order and tagged for 10 months – but won’t involve any unpaid work.

Lamond’s sentencing was pushed back to accommodate his travel plans, what!!? It is said that the people who were in attendance for the jury, including the victim’s parents were told that the convict had been excused to go on a pre-planned holiday to the Channel Islands.

As the hearing resulted in a plea that helped Lamond avoid jail based on claims from his lawyer Gwen Haggerty that he would be in danger if placed in prison, how ridiculous!

Gwen Haggerty told Dunfermline Sheriff Court:

Gwen said, “The concern is he would become a target. He’s already been targeted because of the press coverage and his car has been spray-painted. The other offenders would become aware of his offence. There has already been at least one incident.”

Instead of jail time

Gwen managed to avoid Lamond’s jail time and was therefore given a community-based sentence, including ten months wearing an ankle monitor.

Outraged by this decision the victim’s mother has spoken against the decision.

The victim’s mother said, “I can’t get my head around it. I felt physically sick when I found out. I wanted closure – my brain wanted closure on it. I’m fuming. That’s another week my daughter has to suffer. The sooner he is locked up the better. I hope they throw away the key.”
