Rutherglen Reformer - - Election - Court re­porter

A randy Ruther­glen cou­ple ended up in court over their sex­ual an­tics ac­cused of flout­ing a court or­der – but only the girl was con­victed.

Stacey Tay­lor, 26, was heard scream­ing “take me” and mak­ing loud sex­ual noises at all hours of the day.

Neigh­bours above com­plained to the coun­cil so much that Tay­lor and her part­ner Derek Mad­dox, 28, were handed an ASBO to keep the noise down.

But in Septem­ber 2014, Tay­lor con­tin­ued to scream and squeal at a flat in Rowantree Gardens in Blair­beth which landed her in court with her boyfriend.

After hear­ing ev­i­dence from neigh­bours Christo­pher and Cather­ine Sweeney – who claimed the loud sex noises dis­rupted their lives – prose­cu­tors with­drew the charge against Mad­dox.

Sher­iff David Young con­victed Tay­lor, who now lives in East Kil­bride, of breach­ing the in­terim court or­der by mak­ing sex­ual noises be­tween Septem­ber 15 and Septem­ber 21, 2014.

Mr Sweeney, 31, was asked if he had any is­sues with the cou­ple, who lived be­low dur­ing the time they lived in Ruther­glen.

He said: “The only is­sue was loud noises com­ing from be­low, loud sex noises.”

The dad-of-two said: “It was moan­ing and groan­ing we would hear. Squeal­ing, what you would as­so­ciate with a porn movie.”

Fis­cal de­pute Chris Farrell asked how of­ten it would hap­pen and Mr Sweeney said: “Daily, some­times sev­eral times a day.”

The court heard after com­plaints, a court or­der was served on the cou­ple in Au­gust 2014, pre­vent­ing the cou­ple from mak­ing ex­ces­sive noise, in­clud­ing sex­ual noises.

Mr Sweeney claimed it was still go­ing on the fol­low­ing month, say­ing: “It was high-pitch moan­ing, phrases like ‘take me’, and groan­ing.”

He said Tay­lor was the per­son moan­ing and speak­ing but he heard groans from both.

De­fence lawyer Garvie McAr­dle, for Mad­dox, said to the wit­ness: “Would it be a pos­si­bil­ity that per­haps what you were hear­ing could be a porno­graphic movie, turned up loud?”

Mr Sweeney replied: “I wouldn’t have thought so. It would need to have been a Scot­tish porn movie.”

Mrs Sweeney, 32, said the “moan­ing” and “scream­ing” she heard was “all fe­male”.

She said she heard Tay­lor shout­ing “Derek”.

The wit­ness told Mr Farrell: “There was re­ally no pat­tern to it at all.”

She said she was an­gry be­cause she had young chil­dren in the house. She told the court: “They were un­able to play in their room at cer­tain times be­cause of the noise.

“Some­times we had to go out. For them I felt an­noyed, quite anx­ious that they were hear­ing things like that.”

Tay­lor is due to give birth next month and will re­turn to court in Oc­to­ber to learn her fate.

It was moan­ing and groan­ing we would hear, squeal­ing…
