Threats in home

Wishaw Press - - FRONT PAGE -

A man who ad­mit­ted be­hav­ing in a threat­en­ing man­ner at a house in Craigneuk has been put be­hind bars.

On Septem­ber 18 in Glen­cairn Av­enue 25-year-old Mark Lang­ford shouted, swore and made of­fen­sive re­marks to a woman.

Lang­ford also ad­mit­ted re­fus­ing to leave the premises, punch­ing a win­dow, mak­ing threats to dam­age prop­erty and is­su­ing threats of vi­o­lence.

His not guilty plea of shout­ing, swear­ing and mak­ing threats of vi­o­lence at a house in Glen­cle­land Road on Septem­ber 8 was ac­cepted by pros­e­cu­tors.

Lang­ford had been due to stand trial for the of­fences but opted to change his plea.

At Hamil­ton Sher­iff Court last week Lang­ford, of Lau­rel Drive, Craigneuk, was jailed for nine months.

Sher­iff Liam Mur­phy dis­counted the sen­tence by a month on ac­count of Lang­ford’s guilty plea.
