Back to jail over
A criminal caught with a baseball bat after being freed early from prison has been sent back to jail for another nine months.
Nathan Gordon, 22, of Leslie Street, Motherwell, appeared at Hamilton Sheriff Court and admitted having an offensive weapon in Montalto Avenue, Motherwell, on March 23.
The court heard he had been given early release on January 29 from a nine-month stretch for housebreaking.
Sheriff Shiona Waldron jailed Gordon for six months on the baseball bat charge but said he must first serve 82 days outstanding from the earlier sentence.
