A CLYDEBANK man has been warned he’ll be sent to prison if he continues to ignore the courts.

Robert Logan was placed on a community payback order with two years’ social work supervision for shouting, swearing, uttering derogatory remarks and threatening violence in an incident at a property in Cornock Crescent on July 17, 2016.

Logan, 28, of Burns Street, appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court for a review of the order on Friday, when his solicitor said there “may have been a genuine misunderstanding” over his client’s compliance.

Phil Lafferty said Logan had been attending TPS Connects, a service in Glasgow and West Dunbartonshire run by Turning Point Scotland, which provides person-centred support to adults with a range of complex needs.

Mr Lafferty told Sheriff Maxwell Hendry: “He had understood from a colleague that if he was attending that, there wouldn’t be a requirement for him to go to one-to-one supervision appointments. That misunderstanding is thoroughly dispelled.”

Referring to a social work report on Logan’s progress with the order, Sheriff Hendry pointed out that Logan had received a visit at his home from his supervisor on June 14, and a recorded delivery letter about his appointments on June 27, but had failed to attend an appointment on July 4.

Mr Lafferty said Logan had spoken by phone to his supervisor two days before the court hearing and was now well aware of what he needed to do.

Sheriff Hendry told Logan: “When I read this report my heart sank. On the face of it you were saying all the right things and then doing none of the right things.”

Continuing the case until August, the sheriff added: “If I see a report which even resembles this one on the next occasion, I will be revoking the order and sending you to prison. That might trigger another downward spiral in your life, but so be it. You will be responsible for that.”
