Tor­lundy woman broke kitchen win­dow

The Oban Times - - News -

A TOR­LUNDY woman must prove she can be­have her­self for six months and pay com­pen­sa­tion for a win­dow dam­aged when she drunk­enly went round to see her ex.

Vanessa Anne Matheson, 23, of Happy Val­ley, Tor­lundy, had pre­vi­ously ad­mit­ted at Fort Wil­liam Sher­iff Court be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing man­ner and dam­ag­ing the win­dow.

On Tuesday the court heard from procu­ra­tor fis­cal Mar­tine East­wood that Matheson had gone to an ad­dress in Fort Wil­liam where she knew her for­mer part­ner was. She banged on the door and shouted that she wanted to talk to him.

‘She was in­tox­i­cated,’ said the fis­cal. The man, and the woman he was with, de­clined to talk to her. Matheson then went to the back of the house and dam­aged the kitchen win­dow.

But her de­fence agent said that Matheson, a first-time of­fender, had only banged on the win­dow in frus­tra­tion and ‘did not ex­pect it to break’.

He added that Matheson and the man had split up but she had re­ceived text mes­sages from him and then dis­cov­ered he was at the prop­erty in Fort Wil­liam and that an­other woman was there.

Matheson worked for her fa­ther, a joiner, who was ar­rang­ing for the win­dow to be re­paired.

Sher­iff Eilidh Mac­Don­ald de­ferred sen­tence for six months for Matheson to be of good behaviour and to prove that resti­tu­tion had been made for the win­dow.
