A Nether­burn man has been jailed for 14 months af­ter plead­ing guilty to a firearms charge.

Alexan­der Jamieson ap­peared be­fore Sher­iff SA Wal­dron for sen­tenc­ing at Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court on Mon­day, Novem­ber 7.

The 34-year-old, of Craignethan Cres­cent, ad­mit­ted hav­ing a loaded dou­ble-bar­relled shot­gun at Three­p­wood Moss woods on De­cem­ber 28 last year.

The court had heard that Jamieson car­ried out the of­fence while on bail for an­other mat­ter.

He pleaded guilty to the charge in Septem­ber, and was granted bail while sen­tenc­ing was de­ferred.

Sher­iff Wal­dron this week sen­tenced Jamieson to 14 months’im­pris­on­ment, two months of which was im­posed in re­spect of the of­fence be­ing com­mit­ted while on bail.

Jamieson’s sen­tence was dis­counted from 18 months due to his guilty plea.
