Man who threatened partner's father suffers fall pre-Falkirk court appearance
A man who threatened to harm his partner’s father is expected to learn his punishment next month.
William Cullen, 41, made the threat in Carronshore on May 12, 2020 during a phone call with the woman.
Cullen, 155 Cedar Road, Cumbernauld, was due to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday, but failed to show after suffering a fall.
Gordon Addison, defence solicitor, said: “He fell and landed on his head.”
He added: “He has had a number of plates inserted.”
Sheriff Derek Livingston said: “He was convicted at Airdrie Sheriff Court on December 22.
“It’s not clear if it’s related to a matter committed during the period of deferment or if it was pre the period of deferment.
“He’s also got another matter outstanding.”
Cullen’s solicitor told the court: “I think it would have been committed during the period of deferment.”
Sentence was deferred until May 20 for Cullen’s personal appearance.
