Reilly, whose address is listed as Polmont YOI, appeared from custody at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, having pled guilty to the assault he committed at the YOI on September 14 last year.

Sheriff John Mundy sentenced Reilly to nine months in prison to run concurrently with the sentence he is already serving, which has a release date of November 21, 2021 at the earliest.
