A KNIGHTSWOOD teenager who behaved in a threatening or abusive fashion towards his ex-partner at a house in Faifley has been ordered to carry out unpaid work as a punishment.

Declan Gilles, 19, of Rotherwood Avenue, shouted and uttered an offensive remark towards his partner and repeatedly banged on a door at the property in Faifley Road on October 8 last year.

Gilles’ solicitor, Tom Brown, said his client had hoped to join the army, but had decided not to apply after being found guilty of a similar offence at Glasgow Sheriff Court on April 18.

Sheriff John Hamilton told Gilles to do 80 hours of unpaid work within six months as a punishment.

This has been added to the 80 hours imposed for the Glasgow case, bringing Gilles’ total punishment to 160 hours of unpaid work.
