A woman was groped and sexually assaulted in Alloa.

Scott Stewart, 30, of Drysdale Street, Alloa, has been put on the sex offenders register as a result.

He appeared in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court for sentencing.

He previously admitted that on November 1 at his home he sexually assaulted a female by placing his hand on her breast over her clothing.

Defence solicitor Kelly Howe said her client was a first offender.

Sheriff Neil Bowie imposed a community payback order with nine months of supervision.

Stewart was put on the sex offenders register for the same period.
