A CLYDEBANK man who threatened his ex and then approached her, breaking a bail order, has been given a second punishment.

Andrew Brown, 26, previously admitted threatening his ex and others at a property in Alexandria in July 2018. In November 2018, he broke his bail for the first offence and approached her and made remarks to her.

Both offences were aggravated by being against an ex-partner.

Brown, of Dunswin Court, had been ordered to do 120 hours of unpaid work in the community and be under the supervision of social work.

At Dumbarton Sheriff Court on October 16, Brown was said to have completed the unpaid work, but not the supervision.

His defence solicitor accepted his client had an “enviable record” but that social workers now reported a “change in attitude” and a strong willingness to prove he can comply.

Sheriff Maxwell Hendry said: “I have lost track of how many times you have appeared before me. Again, I thought I would send you to prison and again you should thank your lawyer.”

For the original threats, Brown was ordered to be under a 7pm to 7am curfew for two months.

For breaching bail, he will be under supervision again for nine months and must do 80 extra hours of unpaid work.

The sheriff added that there would be no further reviews and he would only see Brown again if the man broke the new community payback order or committed another crime.
