A TULLIBODY man who was found guilty of driving his car at a lollipop lady has been spared a prison sentence.

Malcolm Reynoldshad denied four charges, including one of dangerous driving, but was found guilty by Sheriff David Mackie following a trial at Alloa Sheriff Court.

The accused appeared again for sentencing last Thursday for the offences.

His charges state that on September 28, 2017, Reynolds drove a car and failed to conform to a prohibition of driving order.

The 35-year-old then drove the same car towards a crossing patrol officer on Lochies Road, Clackmannan, while she was standing in the middle of the road after allowing children to cross and struck the traffic control sign she was holding.

Reynolds, at the time of the offences, did not have a valid licence or insurance.

Sheriff Mackie sentenced Reynolds, of Moubray Gardens, Tullibody, to 240 hours of unpaid work and 12 months of supervision.

He will also be disqualified from driving for 12 months and required to sit an extended test when that expires.
