Bo'ness domestic offender's report almost 'impossible to read'

A sheriff struggled to read a social work report due to poor printing but he did see the section that stated a domestic offender was “willing” to take part in the Caledonian Programme.

Daniel Jones (40) from Bo’ness appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court having admitted threatening behaviour at an address in Tedder Street, Grangemouth, on June 2.

Sheriff Eric Brown said the font or type face of the social work report on Jones made sections of it “impossible to read”, but there were some parts he could clearly see, including the statement Jones would be willing to undertake the Caledonian domestic abuse programme.

Sheriff Brown placed Jones on the programme and on a supervised community payback order for two years.

He also fixed a review of the order for February 24 next year.
