Trial delay for Gala man accused of shouting and swearing at former partner

The trial of a Galashiels man accused of shouting and swearing, and demanding and receiving £50 from his former partner, has been delayed until August.

Thursday, 13th June 2019, 1:28 pm
The alleged offences took place in Galashiels High Street.

Jordan Cunningham, 24, of Forest Place, has denied behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at the Harrow Inn and in High Street, Galashiels, on April 27.

He also pleaded not guilty to breaching a court order by contacting the woman.

The trial was due to take place on Thursday, but was adjourned as the crown requested more time to acquire mobile phone evidence and a witness was on holiday.
