A DALMUIR man who repeatedly threatened his partner with violence while at his former home will be sentenced later this month.

Michael Fay, 53, of West Court, admitted acting aggressively towards the woman at a property in King Street, Whitecrook, on April 12.

Fay was due to be sentenced at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last Friday after pleading guilty to the charge on April 15, but Sheriff Simon Pender agreed to a defence motion to defer sentence further to enable Fay to be assessed for a place on the PAIR programme, which works with people in West Dunbartonshire who have been convicted of domestic abuse charges.

It is a 16-week group work programme aimed at reducing harmful and controlling behaviour towards women and children.

But Fay’s lawyer, Stephen McGuire, claimed his client hadn’t received any letters telling him to go for such an appointment.

Sheriff Pender released Fay on bail, but with a specific condition attached requiring him to attend a social work appointment on June 3.

He will return to the dock for sentencing on June 28, when he will learn his fate.
