James Wilson, 37, 3 County Cottages, Elgin, admitted behaving threateningly by repeatedly contacting the woman, shouting and swearing at her in Denny on November 8, 2019.

He then repeatedly shouted, swore and made offensive remarks, while on bail, at a Grangemouth home on October 23, 2020.

Speaking last Thursday, Sheriff Derek Livingston said the matter had been deferred for Wilson to be of good behaviour and a supplementary report.

The solicitor added: “He does have outstanding cases in relation to a breach of bail.

“There’s an outstanding matter in Elgin.”
