Prison officer found naked in bed with violent convict admits intimate messages
PUBLISHED April 16, 2012
Christine Robertson said James 'Jimmy' Holland was "infatuated" with her but this was not mutual and he tricked her into meeting him after absconding from Castle Huntly open prison near Dundee.
The 45-year-old said he forced her to strip and lie in her bed but Holland entered her bedroom for the first time as police broke down her door following a tip-off he was in her flat.
However, her trial at Dundee Sheriff Court was shown a series of cards and text messages she sent to him, one of which read: "I want you too in a nice clean silky bed - only one thing missing is you."
One of the greeting cards, signed with the moniker Ginger, contained a message that read: "I really, really like you." Robertson admitted sending the messages but claimed this was only because he threatened her.
The trial had previously heard how officers burst into her flat in Monifieth, Angus and discovered the pair naked in bed. Holland then had to be blasted with a Taser stun gun to subdue him as he waved a knife.
