The Oban Times - - Lochaber Times & Oban Times -

A 20-YEAR- OLD Fort Wil­liam man has been or­dered to carry out 80 hours of com­mu­nity work and has been placed on the sex of­fend­ers’ reg­is­ter for 18 months.

Igor Sli­win­ski, of 4 Cameron Ter­race, Mary Street, Fort Wil­liam, ap­peared be­fore Sher­iff Eilidh Mac­Don­ald on Tues­day July 18 for sen­tenc­ing after ad­mit­ting throw­ing salt at a po­lice of­fi­cer and bit­ing him; re­peat­edly spit­ting on an­other of­fi­cer and en­gag­ing in an in­de­cent of­fence while in a cell at Fort Wil­liam Po­lice sta­tion.

Sli­win­ski also ad­mit­ted breach­ing one of the con­di­tions of an ear­lier com­mu­nity pay­back or­der by not show­ing up for un­paid work in the com­mu­nity on one oc­ca­sion. The sher­iff re­voked this or­der and put in place a new or­der to com­plete 60 hours of work in three months.

His de­fence agent Hamish Mel­rose said Sli­win­ski had no pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions and while he had com­mit­ted the ‘most un­pleas­ant of of­fences’ he had never be­haved in that man­ner be­fore and had not done so since the in­ci­dent.

Sher­iff Mac­Don­ald sen­tenced Sli­win­ski to 80 hours of un­paid work in the com­mu­nity, to be com­pleted in six months, an­other 60 hours for breach­ing one of the con­di­tions of an ear­lier com­mu­nity pay­back or­der and placed him on the sex of­fend­ers’ reg­is­ter for 18 months.
