Paedo used Snapchat to threaten schoolgirl victim three days after early release

A highly dangerous sex offender who taunted his schoolgirl victim from behind bars broke a strict order by contacting her within three days of being freed early from jail.

Gloating paedophile Brandon Williamson contacted his victim’s friend through Snapchat within 72 hours of being released from Perth Prison in March.

He knew the message would be passed on to his victim and said he would “ruin her life” as revenge for him ending up behind bars.


Fiscal depute Marie Lyons told Perth Sheriff Court today that Williamson had been released from prison on 17 March and contacted a teenage girl on 20 March.

“He had been released from a sentence imposed in relation to the same complainer. He is a high risk sex offender and will be managed in the community until 2029.

“They had been in a relationship for around a year in 2018 and she was 13 or 14. He was convicted of sexual offences and violent assaults against her.

“While he was in prison he sent offensive letters to her mother and had a further eight months imposed. He was not to approach or contact the complainer in any way.”

Mrs Lyons told the court Williamson messaged the girl’s friend to say he would “scunner” her and “ruin her life” for causing him to be away from his family while he was locked up.

Williamson, 21 [2-1-00], admitted breaching a non-harassment order by sending indirect unsolicited messages which he knew would reach his victim on 20 March.

Solicitor Paul Ralph, defending, said: “He came out of jail a confused young man. He logged into his Snapchat account and the old contacts came up.

“The offence was not direct contact but it was reckless to get in touch with her friend.”

Sheriff Linda Smith jailed Williamson for ten months yesterday.

Dundee Sheriff Court previously heard how Williamson bragged to her mother that he would jump on the girl’s head when he was freed from prison.

The then 15-year-old girl and her mother were left terrified and distraught when sick Williamson sent them a handwritten six-page letter from Polmont YOI.

The court was told that the mother and daughter became hysterical and have since been forced to ramp up security at their Perthshire home.

Sheriff Alistair Carmichael jailed Williamson and banned him from having any contact with the girl or her mother for the next five years.

Williamson was sentenced to 31 months in December 2019 after he admitted having sexual activity with under-age girls in Perth and Inchture.

However, within weeks he had started penning the sickening letter which he addressed and then posted to his victim’s mother.

Fiscal depute Stewart Duncan told the court: “The girl and her mother were in their home when a letter was delivered. The mother opened the letter and saw it was from the accused.

“She began to cry uncontrollably. The girl found her mother in an emotional state. The girl read it and felt physically sick from fear.

“There were six handwritten A5 pages. He gloated about the violence he had previously inflicted on her and threatened further violence.”

Williamson wrote: “Ha ha, alright you fat smelly wee slut. Two and a half years is no bad. I’ll get out and melt the face right off you.

“Did you think phoning the jail would do any good? They can’t ban me from phoning. Fuck you, stupid cow. It was great fun punching [your daughter] about.

“She tried to beg me to stop, so I kicked her in the ribs. If she thinks I’ll leave her alone she’s wrong. I’m jumping all over her head every time I see her.”

Williamson bragged about how early he would be released from his sentence and taunted them about coming to their home within a matter of months.

Mr Duncan told the court that the mother, who cannot be named for legal reasons, called in the police to report Williamson’s evil threats.
