A 25-YEAR-OLD “deeply unpleasant” Dalmuir woman has been told by a sheriff she needs to be turned into an adult.

Jade Bradley appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last week for a review of her progress on a community payback order (CPO) for four separate offences.

The original cases have been dragging on for nearly three years now as the courts tackle the Ellinger Court resident.

On December 20, 2016, she shouted, swore and made threats of violence to passengers on a bus in Kilbowie Road.

Then on January 9, 2017, at a property in Second Avenue, she assaulted a social worker by grabbing her by the throat, spitting on her, and pulling her to the ground by her hair.

Bradley was further charged for not appearing for court hearings in 2017 and 2018.

Defence solicitor Kenny McGowan told the court last week that he appeared to “detect some maturing” but Sheriff John Hamilton retorted: “I’m not seeing it.”

Mr McGowan said his client was completing the requirement for unpaid work but not the supervision part of the CPO. She has not offended in “some significant time”.

Sheriff Hamilton said: “I don’t know what do with Ms Bradley. I find her one of the most difficult people to deal with - deeply unpleasant and anti-social.”

Mr McGowan insisted his client was benefitting from the CPO and there was “incremental progress”.

Turning to Bradley, Sheriff Hamilton told her: “Supervision is to try to turn you into a more pleasant and positive person. We’re trying to turn you into an adult.”

He ordered Bradley return to court on January 31, 2020, to review her progress on the CPO.
