Man ad­mits racism

Wishaw Press - - HOSPITAL BLOW -

A man has ad­mit­ted shout­ing racist abuse at a Shotts store worker.

Phillip Don­nelly made the racially of­fen­sive com­ments to the shop worker in­side Ali’s Mini Mar­ket in Springhill Road on June 10.

Dur­ing the course of the in­ci­dent, Don­nelly shouted, swore, is­sued threats of vi­o­lence and made the racist re­marks.

At Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court last week, Sher­iff Ray Small fined Don­nelly £ 600 as a re­sult of his ac­tions.

This was re­duced from £750 on ac­count of his guilty plea.

In a sep­a­rate in­ci­dent, Don­nelly also pleaded guilty to steal­ing a ve­hi­cle in his home street of Ap­pin Ter­race on Oc­to­ber 19 last year.

For this of­fence he was sen­tenced to four months in prison.
