Man banned from contacting his ex


A MAN who filmed his former partner as she picked her children up from school has been banned from contacting her for the next five years.

Christophe­r McGregor admitted following the woman and photograph­ing and filming her on January 29. The 30-year-old was subject to two bail orders when he committed the offence.

Dundee Sheriff Court heard the woman had seen McGregor, of Dunholm Road, in the Liff Road area at 2.50pm but was not concerned as he lived locally. However, her attitude soon changed after seeing McGregor on Dickson Avenue a short time later.

Fiscal depute Carol Doherty said previously: “After collecting her children, she was driving along Dickson Avenue and saw the accused. He appeared to have his phone out as if he was filming and taking photograph­s.

“At around 4pm on the same date, the complainer and a friend were in her car when she again saw the accused filming her in Mallaig Avenue.”

McGregor pleaded guilty to engaging in a course of conduct which caused the woman fear and alarm by following her, loitering, taking photograph­s and filming her.

Sheriff Jillian Martin-Brown placed him on a community payback order with two years of supervisio­n and a requiremen­t to participat­e in the Caledonian Programme for domestic offenders. He was also made subject to a non-harassment order for five years.
