Jon Pirie, using the name of a friend, even gave his ex a date and place for his “funeral”, after making up a story saying he had died in a road smash.

Pirie appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court where he admitted a charge under the communications act.

Pirie’s defense solicitor Gregor Kelly entered a guilty plea on behalf of his client when he appeared before Sheriff Christopher Shead.

The offence took place at an address at Westhill and Inverurie on March 19 last year.

Pirie was said to have committed the offence for the purpose of “causing annoyance, inconvenience, or needless anxiety” to Erica McKay.

Pirie sent a message to Ms. McKay, pretending to be someone else, and “falsely” stated that he had been “killed in a car crash and that there would be a private burial”.
