Man threat­ened part­ner

The Oban Times - - NEWS -

AN OBAN man has pleaded guilty to threat­en­ing his part­ner af­ter she wanted to end their re­la­tion­ship.

An­drew Files, 35, of 1 Duart Place, ad­mit­ted be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing or abu­sive man­ner and caus­ing fear or alarm on De­cem­ber 27 at a house in Creag Bhan Vil­lage, Oban, by shout­ing and swear­ing, ut­ter­ing de­mands and of­fen­sive re­marks, and act­ing in an ag­gres­sive man­ner.

Procu­ra­tor fis­cal Eoin McGinty told Oban Sher­iff Court on Tues­day (Jan­uary 31) that the ac­cused and his part­ner had been in a re­la­tion­ship for more than 12 years but that the part­ner had said she wanted the re­la­tion­ship to come to an end.

Mr McGinty said that through­out Christ­mas Day Files had chal­lenged his part­ner with ‘ev­i­dence’ that she was hav­ing an af­fair.

‘On De­cem­ber 26, the ac­cused left the house. The part­ner was asleep when the ac­cused re­turned shout­ing.

‘She came down­stairs to ask him to stop.

‘The ac­cused’s po­si­tion was that she had done most of the shout­ing.’

Sher­iff Ruth An­der­son told Files: ‘I am not stop­ping you con­tact­ing your for­mer part­ner, but it must be in a civilised way. You may visit the house.

‘I will de­fer sen­tence for four months to see if things are work­ing out.’
