Back in court

Ayrshire Post - - NEWS -

A jilted lover bom­barded his ex with 100 un­wanted calls and 80 text mes­sages in just ten hours.

John McCur­die, 29, ap­peared at Ayr Sher­iff Court last week af­ter breach­ing an or­der ban­ning him from con­tact­ing Laura Lind­say.

De­spite be­ing sub­ject to a com­mu­nity pay­back or­der, McCur­die re­peat­edly con­tacted Ms Lind­say on Septem­ber 21, 2015, in­clud­ing try­ing to reach her on so­cial me­dia.

His de­fence agent Mandy Stew­art told the court he had taken the loss of grand­mother “ex­cep­tion­ally badly” and suf­fered a break­down be­fore the breach.

Sher­iff Mhairi Mac­tag­gart re­voked the or­der that had been breached, and made McCur­die, of James Brown Av­enue in Ayr, sub­ject to a new com­mu­nity pay­back or­der where he must not con­tact Ms Lind­say for 12 months and carry out 100 hours of un­paid work in the next three months.
