Silver, of Hillend Drive in Hawick, also pleaded guilty to a third charge of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner on August 10.

Sentencing had been deferred until Monday, January 6, for the production of criminal justice social work and domestic violence reports, plus a restriction-of-liberty order assessment, but they were unavailable so it was further deferred until February 17.

Silver had originally denied 10 charges of assaults on four former partners, but, ahead of a planned trial, he pleaded guilty to assaulting two of the women and not-guilty pleas were accepted to the other charges.
