Connor McGowan (27) failed to appear at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday after previously pleading guilty to engaging in a course of conduct – sending threatening and abusive text messages – which caused his ex partner fear and alarm in Wallace Street, Falkirk, between October 10 and October 12, 2020.

Back in February McGowan failed to appear at court and told his solicitor he had “no funds” to travel from Cambuslang to Camelon.

On Thursday it was stated there was no explanation for his non-appearance.
