Man threatened partner
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.’
