A MAN who has repeatedly broken court curfews has been given another one and warned he could face up to 10 years in jail if he steps out of line.

Lewis Wade, of Clyde Court, Clydebank, appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court on April 23 for more than half a dozen cases spanning years.

The 28-year-old broke a curfew on November 3, 2021, December 12, 2021, June 9, 2022, August 24 and 30, 2022, January 28, 2023 and February 13, 2024. He broke multiple bail orders in that time.

The court was told an existing community payback order (CPO) for another crime had come to an end but Wade was up for seven other cases.

Sheriff Maxwell Hendry imposed a new CPO with supervision by social workers for 18 months. He must take alcohol counselling and/or treatment as directed by them.

And he will be electronically tagged and must stay home between 7pm and 7am for three months.

There will be a review of his progress on August 13.

The sheriff warned him: "We really are scraping the bottom of the barrel to avoid sending you to prison.

"In every other case, I cannot calculate the maximum sentence - it is probably approaching 10 years."

He added that any breach of the new CPO, it would be "difficult to envisage any alternative" to jail.
