Man jailed af­ter ex­pos­ing him­self to woman

The Galloway News - - NEWS -

A 35-year-old man who ex­posed him­self in front of a woman at a Cas­tle Dou­glas pub has been placed on the sex of­fend­ers’ reg­is­ter by the sher­iff at Dum­fries.

An­drew Goldie, de­scribed as a pris­oner at Bar­lin­nie, but who works on the fish­ing boats at Kirkcud­bright, ad­mit­ted com­mit­ting a breach of the peace at Sam’s Bar in King Street, Cas­tle Dou­glas, in May.

He also pleaded guilty to be­hav­ing in a threatenin­g or abu­sive man­ner by rais­ing a glass bot­tle and chal­leng­ing an­other man at the bar to a fight.

In ad­di­tion Goldie ad­mit­ted as­sault­ing a po­lice con­sta­ble at Th­reaveTer­race in Cas­tle Dou­glas, lash­ing out at him with his legs and spit­ting on his face.

The court heard that he also be­haved in a threatenin­g man­ner in a po­lice ve­hi­cle be­tween Cas­tle Dou­glas and Dum­fries, shouted and swore at cops, kicked out at them, strug­gled with them and uri­nated in the ve­hi­cle.

Fis­cal de­pute Jen­nifer McGill told the court that Goldie had been in the pub look­ing out and when he saw a woman look­ing in he ex­posed him­self and said:“I want you.”

He then chal­lenged an­other man to fight.

So­lic­i­tor Roger Colledge said Goldie’s prob­lem over the years had been his ad­dic­tion to val­ium and he had also suf­fered a num­ber of health prob­lems in­clud­ing a heart at­tack.

On this oc­ca­sion he had de­cided to have a drink but over in­dulged and his last mem­ory was of the bar­man telling him he had had enough.

Sen­tence was de­ferred for back­ground re­ports to Oc­to­ber 24 and Goldie was re­manded in cus­tody.
