Jason ONeil has a history of sexual crimes, including sharing a private video of a woman performing a sex act on him.
Last year the 28-year-old pled guilty to sexually assaulting a woman at a flat in Dundee on February 18 2022.
Fully-clothed ONeil grabbed her by her hair, bent her over a kitchen worktop and rubbed his private parts against her buttocks, simulating sex.
At the same place that day, he exposed his genitals to a teenager.
In a bathroom, he dropped his trousers and underwear with the intention she would see his naked bottom half.
ONeil proceeded to act in a threatening manner later that night and into the following morning.
He admitted acting abusively towards police who came to apprehend him.
He repeatedly shouted and swore and made sexual and derogatory remarks, before spitting within a police vehicle, banging his head on the window and lashing out with his legs.
ONeil has been on remand since February and appeared from custody by videolink at Dundee Sheriff Court on Monday to be sentenced.
His solicitor Ross Donnelly said: “What I said would be of particular concern is knowing he has nowhere to go after his release.”
Mr Donnelly noted that at the time of the offences, his client was already on the subject to sex offender registration requirements and was subject to a community payback order.
This came as a result sharing a video on Snapchat of a woman performing a sex act on him in April 2019.
O’Neil filmed the woman while they were staying together at a hotel in Dundee in 2019.
He and the woman engaged in consensual sex but she ended all contact with him after her friends and family became aware of the video being shared on social media.
For his latest offences, Sheriff Paul Brown jailed ONeil for two years, three months of which was in relation to the offending towards police.
Placing the “high risk” HMP Perth inmate on the sex offenders register for a decade, Sheriff Brown said: “These are serious offences against a background of serious offending.
“There’s no alternative, in my view, to a period in custody.”
Social workers identified a string of post-release conditions, which the sheriff agreed was “the most appropriate” option to impose.
ONeil’s sentence was backdated to February, when he was remanded.
