A TILLICOULTRY man has been warned he will be heading to jail if he continues to bully his mother.

Leslie Weir, 21, of High Street, was back in the dock at Alloa Sheriff Court on Thursday, April 15.

He admitted that on November 24, at his home at Lower Mill Street, Tillicoultry, he shouted, swore, acted aggressively towards his mother and made abusive remarks.

Defence solicitor Robert Smith said: "He accepts he cannot continue to behave in this reprehensible way.

"He wasn't under the influence of anything, it was an anger management issue."

Sheriff Craig Harris said: "This was bullying and abusive behaviour towards his mother and he's done it before. It's really nasty – really nasty."

He then warned Weir if he breached his order or continued to offend in this way, he could expect a jail sentence.

He told him: "You've got a history of bullying your mother, who puts you up and does everything for you. Treat your mother with respect."

The sheriff fined Weir £320 and imposed a community payback order with 12 months of supervision.
