Purse stolen

Lennox Herald - - NEWS -

A man who shouted and swore at his part­ner be­fore steal­ing her purse has been given a chance to be of good be­hav­iour.

Ken­neth Brown, 50, pled guilty to be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing man­ner to­wards his part­ner in Napier­ston Road, Bon­hill, on June 27 last year.

Brown, of Ob­bis­ton Drive, Cly­de­bank, ad­mit­ted shout­ing and swear­ing at the woman and a para­medic be­fore steal­ing the woman’s purse.

De­fend­ing, Judith Reid said that Brown was en­gag­ing well with a com­mu­nity pay­back or­der for an­other case and had been of good be­hav­iour.

She said: “He is do­ing well. Dur­ing the course of these cases there have been some sig­nif­i­cant men­tal health is­sues. He is go­ing to have this com­mu­nity pay­back or­der hang­ing over him for some time and he knows what will hap­pen to him if he breaches that or­der.”

Giv­ing him a chance to con­tinue his good be­hav­iour, Sher­iff Wil­liam Gal­lacher said: “I will al­low the or­ders to con­tinue but if you do not com­ply with the or­der the op­tion will be very straight­for­ward.”

Sentence was de­ferred un­til Oc­to­ber 24.
