A 27-year-old who carried out a campaign of harassment against a number of women has been sentenced to 22 months in prison, made the subject of a non-harassment order and placed on the sex offenders register.

The 27-year-old, who worked as a nurse at Crosshouse Hospital in Kilmarnock, pursued relationships with ten women through social media sites, dating websites and apps over a four-year period.

One of the disturbing aspects to the case was that Rennie allegedly duped the women into sending explicit photographs in an attempt to ‘harm and humiliate’ them.
