Graham Simpson, a violent male transvestite, has a string of convictions for sex offences and stalking of young women around Blairgowrie in Scotland. He is not understood to have served a single day in prison despite his prolific and repeated sex offending for over 15 years.

In 1993 and 1996, he was put on probation after being convicted on charges relating to indecent breaches of the peace where he followed young women.

At age 22 in 1996, he was convicted of the indecent assault of a 14 year old girl and of indecently exposing himself to a 22-year-old woman who was riding a horse on a country road when Simpson slowly drove past several times, then got out wearing only a T-shirt and shoes. He was ordered not to use his car outside work as part of special conditions attached to a three-year probation order, which also included restriction on his driving and attendance at the Tay Project for sex offenders.

Perth and Kinross MP Roseanna Cunningham said she approved of the attendance at the project but felt the overall sentence did appear to be somewhat lenient.

In 2002, and now aged 35, Simpson’s car was confiscated by the sheriff after he was convicted of conducting himself in a disorderly manner by repeatedly following two young female students. Simpson was placed on probation for three years and ordered to attend the Tay Project for sex offenders. Not guilty pleas to a further three charges of harassing five further students were accepted. 

In 2010 police officers found Simpson sitting in his car in a lay-by on a main road at 9.50pm wearing just ladies underwear, socks and a jacket: on checking records, they discovered he was on the Sex Offenders’ Register and on probation for previous offences. Simpson told officers he had a “fetish” and wore the underwear as it made him feel “sort of excited”.

Simpson was put on probation for three years after admitting a breach of the peace – and his name was added to the Sex Offenders’ Register for the same period – when he appeared for sentence at Perth Sheriff Court. He was also ordered to (again) attend the Tay Project, which aims to rehabilitate sex offenders.

The (male) sheriff Lindsay Foulis refused to make Simpson the subject of a Sexual Offences Protection Order or ban him from driving while alone or approaching lone women. Sheriff Foulis also allowed violent transvestite sex offender Gavin Scott to escape a prison sentence, despite serious and repeat sexual offending against three young women in 2014.
