AN AYR man is set to go on trial over charges of threatening to expose images and messages of a woman while working at Ayr United FC.

Cameron Robertson pleads not guilty to a charge of engaging in a course of behaviour which caused the woman fear and alarm between January 2018 and May 2022.

The charge alleges that the 60-year-old repeatedly contacted the woman, sending an excessive amount of messages over the period, while he was working at Ayr United’s facilities at Tryfield Place.

It’s claimed that he also stared at the woman, followed her, and threatened to disclose messages and photographs of her.

Mr Robertson, of Inverkar Road, Ayr, pleaded not guilty to the charge when the case called at Ayr Sheriff Court.

The trial was previously adjourned over Christmas, with four years of messages to be used in evidence to be fully disclosed and viewed.

When he appeared in court again on Monday, February 26, his solicitor confirmed Mr Robertson was continuing to plead not guilty. 

His trial date was again deferred until later this year due to witness availability.

He will return to court at a later date.

All accused persons reported in the Ayr Advertiser are considered innocent unless they are later found, or later admitting to being, guilty.
