Depute fiscal India McLean said the couple had been in a relationship for 10 years but it was ended by the woman in August 2021.

She explained that in the early hours of April 15, 2023, the woman received a message from McLennan which contained kisses and emojis. She did not reply and blocked the number.

Ms McLean continued: “A week later the woman received a message from a friend to say McLennan had sent a video of her having sexual intercourse with Mr McLennan.

“It showed her and Mr McLennan having sexual intercourse for a number of minutes. She confirmed that it was her and that it had been sent to other people. She contacted the police.”

Sentence was deferred for a Criminal Justice Social Work Report and a Restriction of Liberty Order assessment until June 10 “to see if there is an alternative to custody.”
