Right Track for­teen

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

A teenager caught with two knives in Coupar An­gus has been given a fur­ther spell on the Right Track scheme, de­signed to keep young­sters out of trou­ble.

Nine­teen-year-old Ste­wart Ram­say, pre­vi­ously of Strath­more Av­enue, Coupar An­gus, ad­mit­ted hav­ing the blades in the town’s Ge­orge Street and Strath­more Av­enue on Novem­ber 3, 2015.

A not guilty plea was ac­cepted to a sec­ond charge of hold­ing one of the weapons to his throat and threat­en­ing to com­mit sui­cide.

He also ad­mit­ted a sec­ond charge of as­sault­ing his mother, Ch­eryl, at his for­mer home on June 22 last year by lung­ing to­wards her and strik­ing her on the head, caus­ing her to fall to the ground, to her in­jury.

At his lat­est ap­pear­ance at Perth Sher­iff Court, it emerged that there had been a re­cent be­reave­ment in his fam­ily.

It was agreed that he be given fur­ther sup­port from Right Track.

He will re­turn to court for sen­tence on April 12 and has been told to stay out of fur­ther trou­ble un­til then.
