Man­jailed forthreats atad­dress

Hamilton Advertiser - - NEWS -

A se­rial thief was last week jailed on charges which in­cluded threat­en­ing be­hav­iour at a Hamil­ton ad­dress.

James Don­nelly, of no fixed abode, had re­peat­edly banged on the door of a house in Hamil­ton’s Ab­bots­ford Av­enue on Oc­to­ber 4 and shouted in­co­her­ently.

The 47-year-old had also shouted, swore and de­manded a cig­a­rette from the oc­cu­pants of a car at an ad­dress in the town’s Vic­to­ria Street on the same date.

Don­nelly ad­mit­ted two charges of threat­en­ing and abu­sive be­hav­iour along with a charge of be­ing found at the Ab­bots­ford Av­enue ad­dress when it could be in­ferred he in­tended to com­mit theft there.

All of the charges stated Don­nelly had been on bail on another mat­ter at the time.

Don­nelly has an ex­ten­sive crim­i­nal record which in­cludes nu­mer­ous theft by shoplift­ing of­fences.

At Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court last week, Sher­iff David Bicket sen­tenced the ac­cused to five months’ im­pris­on­ment in cu­mulo on the charges.

Thirty days of the sen­tence was due to the bail ag­gra­va­tion.
