A woman who sent sexual messages to people she believed were children has avoided jail.
Agnes Kennedy, 62, was instead chatting with a decoys posing as girls in January and July 2021.
Kennedy initially made contacted ‘Stacey’ on social media from a property in Glasgow’s Balornock.
Court papers state that Kennedy, of the city’s Cranhill, sent the decoy sexual written communication and directed sexual verbal communication on Facebook Messenger.
These were messages of a sexual nature on a video call where she exposed intimate areas of her body to the decoy.
Kennedy later sent an image of her naked breasts to another decoy named ‘Sadie’.
Both charges are stated to be an attempt to communicate indecently with a child.
Kennedy – who walks with a Zimmer frame – pled guilty last month at Glasgow Sheriff Court to both offences.
Sheriff Andrew Mackie put Kennedy under supervision and the sex offenders register for two years.
She was also tagged for 135 days keeping her indoors between 7pm and 7am.
Bob McCormack, defending, told an earlier hearing that his client is unable to articulate her emotions.
He said: “She had indicated all along that she has no recollection of how these conversations came about.
“Nor does she have recollections of what she was doing on social media in the first place.
“It is quite apparent from the images taken that the police have that she was involved in that – she is culpable throughout and she realises that.
“She has difficulty grasping the reason as to what motivated her – she is not denying it was sexually motivated.”
