"He was thoroughly ashamed of his behaviour,” Mr Biggam added.

The court heard Todd’s partner, who had now transitioned to become a non-binary person, wanted the relationship between them to continue.

Sheriff Simon Collins QC noted Todd, 33 Graham Street, Barrhead, had a previous domestic offence conviction and deferred sentence on him until November 4 for reports. His bail conditions were altered to allow him to have contact with his partner.
