The lawyer told Sheriff Derek Livingston his client had tried to contact social workers after changing address.

Mr Hutchison said: “She phoned the office.

“She’s in homeless property. We told her to phone social work and she says she did and left a message.”

Sheriff Livingston allowed the address on Laird’s bail order to be amended and deferred sentence for a restriction of liberty order assessment until July 29.

Bail was continued.
