A MAN accused of domestic offences has been granted bail subject to the special condition that he does not step foot in Clackmannanshire.

The only exception to the condition is the 21-year-old, from Stirling, can enter the Wee County for the sole purpose of attending court.

The accused was slapped with the Clacks ban during an appearance at Alloa Sheriff Court on Thursday, February 13.

The previous day, he pleaded not guilty to two charges of assault, allegedly committed against two of his ex-partners in Clacks on February 11.

On that occasion he was release on bail, subject to the condition he doesn't communicate or attempt to communicate with either complainer.

However, he was arrested later the same day and charged with four new offences: two assaults (one against each partner), one instance of threatening behaviour, and one breach of bail conditions.

The charges relating to assault and threatening behaviour were aggravated by allegedly being committed while the accused was on bail.

Appearing from custody at Alloa Sheriff Court on Thursday, the accused's solicitor, Lisa McGuigan, entered pleas of "not guilty" to the new charges.

Ms McGuigan then asked for her client to be liberated on bail once again, which was opposed by fiscal depute Ann Orr.

Sheriff Craig Harris chose to grant the request, after pointing out the accused had no previous history of failing to comply with court orders.

But he imposed the special condition, telling the accused: "[You] may not enter Clackmannanshire except for court appearances.

"Understand that if you appear before the court again with further allegations, your situation is more than precarious."

The case will go to trial in April.
