Pub flasher jailed for two years

The Galloway News - - RENEWI SETTLEMENT -

BERT HOUS­TON A 35- year- old man who ex­posed him­self in front of a woman has been jailed for 24 months and placed on the sex of­fend­ers’ reg­is­ter for seven years.

But Sher­iff Brian Mo­han at Dum­fries back- dated the jail sen­tence on An­drew Goldie to May when he was ini­tially taken into cus­tody.

The court had heard that Goldie had been in the pub in Cas­tle Dou­glas look­ing out and when he saw the woman look­ing in had ex­posed him­self and said: “I want you.”

Goldie, who works on fish­ing boats at Kirkcud­bright, ad­mit­ted com­mit­ting the breach of the peace at Sam’s Bar in Cas­tle Dou­glas in May.

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

The court heard that Goldie also as­saulted a po­lice of­fi­cer at nearby Th­reave Ter­race, lash­ing out at him with his legs and spit­ting on his face.

In ad­di­tion he ad­mit­ted be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing man­ner in a po­lice ve­hi­cle between Dum­fries and Cas­tle Dou­glas, shout­ing and swear­ing at of­fi­cers, kick­ing out at them and strug­gling with them.

So­lic­i­tor Roger Colledge said Goldie had been drink­ing and his rec­ol­lec­tion of events was zero and he was ashamed of his be­hav­iour.

Sher­iff Mo­han said that since Goldie had served the equiv­a­lent of more than a 12-month sen­tence he would back­date the sen­tence.
