Andrew Fotheringham, 27, of 23 Bankier Road, Banknock, admitted failing to comply with a court order by entering a property in Ladeside Crescent on January 5.

Fotheringham had been granted bail at Falkirk Sheriff Court on December 7 last year.

He reappeared in court yesterday (Thursday) where his defence solicitor told Sheriff Derek Livingston the matter had been deferred for a report and for Fotheringham to be of good behaviour.

The lawyer added: “His position is he hasn’t been spoken to by the social work and hasn’t received any letters.”

Sheriff Derek Livingston asked: “Why has he done nothing about it?”

The solicitor replied: “He hasn’t done a Criminal Justice Social Work report before.”

Sheriff Livingston said he was deferring sentence until June 3 for a background report and restriction of liberty order assessment “with some hesitation”.

Bail was continued.
