First offender told to ‘get it fixed’

A WOMAN who admitted assaulting her partner has been admonished.

First offender Jane Douglas, of Thornfield Crescent, repeatedly punched Raymond Hislop on the body and struck him on the head at a house in Thornfield Avenue on April 6, as her partner is also in a relationship with another woman.

Procurator fiscal Graham Fraser told the town’s court: “Fortunately no injury appears to have been sustained.

“The two of them have had an argument. She has medical problems and mood swings.

“He is in a relationship with her and another lady, and that has led to problems.”

Her lawyer pointed out the complainer is 6ft 3in and 19 stone.

Sheriff Kevin Drummond told Douglas: “You are 47 years old and a first offender. You got involved in a dispute. Get it fixed.”
