Climbed through ex’s win­dow

Ayrshire Post - - Special Report - Pippa Smith

a man ad­mit­ted to threat­en­ing to ‘ kill’ his former lover in a drunken rage.

Ja­son cham­bers, of Heather park, ayr, owned up to at­tend­ing his ex part­ner’s home by climb­ing through a win­dow on cedar road in ayr on July 8, un­in­vited, wait­ing for her within and ap­proach­ing her flat­mate within the kitchen when she was un­aware of his pres­ence.

the 28- year- old ap­peared be­fore sher­iff David Young Qc at ayr sher­iff court last week.

De­pute Fis­cal, ed sheeran, said: “Wit­nesses were in ayr town cen­tre in var­i­ous pubs. at around 3am, one of the wit­nesses left the other wit­ness to re­turn home.”

the court heard that how cham­bers had en­tered the ad­dress through a win­dow. When the wit­ness re­turned to the ad­dress, she was “fright­ened” by the ac­cused pres­ence.

Mr sheeran con­tin­ued: “the ac­cused shouted “if she comes home, i will kill her” re­fer­ring to [ his ex part­ner] - he con­tin­ued to shout and swear. When [ his ex part­ner] ar­rived at the ad­dress, in a taxi, she heard the ac­cused and the first wit­ness ar­gu­ing. she left the ad­dress and called the po­lice.

“po­lice ar­rived and then traced the ac­cused. they found him to be hid­ing close to a pri­mary school.

“they noted the first wit­ness cry­ing and shak­ing.

“at 4am, they took the ac­cused to ayr po­lice of­fice - he was cau­tioned and charged.”

De­fence so­lic­i­tor, John gal­lagher, told the court that cham­bers had con­sumed drink prior to the in­ci­dent which“im­paired his judge­ment”.

He added: “Hav­ing been given cer­tain in­for­ma­tion, he at­tempted to speak to the wit­ness, who is his ex part­ner. [ once he was in the house], he then fell asleep to be awo­ken by the wit­ness who came into the home - there was then a dis­cus­sion.

“He had lost his tem­per and made these vain threats.

“the re­la­tion­ship with his [ ex part­ner] is now at an end.”

sher­iff Young is­sued cham­bers a struc­tured de­ferred sen­tence and will ap­pear back at court in the new year.
