A MAN has pleaded guilty to issuing threats at a local MP’s office.

Gilbert Penman appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court on Thursday, May 9, where his lawyer tendered a plea of guilty on his behalf.

According to charges, On April 10, the 55-year-old attended the office of Luke Graham MP on Primrose Street and behaved in a threatening or abusive manner.

He shouted, swore, gestured aggressively and issued threats.

Robert Smith, representing Penman, invited the court to wait for mitigation until a criminal justice social work report had been completed.

It is not the first time Penman, of Hill Street, Alloa, has been in trouble after an outburst.

In April of last year, he was hauled before the courts after branding police officers “corporate Nazis”.

The officers had been called to remove the man from Alloa’s job centre after he refused to leave when asked to do so by staff.

Penman will be sentenced on June 6.
