A FORTH VALLEY man ended up behind bars for failing to comply with court orders imposed more than two years ago.

Scott White, 28, of Ochilview, Cowie, appeared at Alloa Sheriff Court by video-link from prison having breached the orders.

He had admitted that on April 8, 2020, at Bowhouse Gardens in Alloa, he repeatedly called his former partner, demanded that she call him, sent her text messages and voicemails indicating that he would take his own life.

Then on various occasions between June 13-14, 2021, he breached bail conditions by repeatedly contacting his former partner by social media and electronic messages.

He was originally sentenced for the offences in July 2021.

White had been held on remand since August 10 since admitting the breach.

At the original sentencing, Sheriff Craig Harris imposed a community payback order with 30 months' supervision and participation in the Caledonian Programme for domestic abusers.

That order has since been revoked and Sheriff Garry Sutherland imposed a new community payback order with one year of supervision, given the time served on remand.

White had also been ordered also carry out 70 hours of unpaid work and was made subject to a non-harassment order for two years.

The court was told 51 hours of the unpaid work has still to be done.

Sheriff Garry Sutherland allowed that order to continue.

When White threatened to kill himself if his former partner did not respond to his messages, she was left extremely upset, the court heard previously.

White had been in an on-off relationship with the woman for 10 years but this had ended before these offences.

He sent messages including: "Remember the good times" and "It's time to earn my wings".
