A CLYDEBANK man who evaded justice for more than four years after breaching a court order has had his sentence doubled.

Archibald Collins, 22, formerly of Alexander Street but now living in Manchester, attacked a man at Balloch rain station in 2014.

Dumbarton Sheriff Court heard on Wednesday how he butted and punched the man – while on bail from Kilmarnock and Dumbarton sheriff courts.

He was originally put on a community payback order of 100 hours’ unpaid work, but breached the order.

His lawyer, Gail Campbell, said: “To his credit he has tried to make something out of his life and now lives in Manchester.”

Sheriff William Gallacher said: “The warrant issued should have been activated quicker.”
