Sabrina Aman (23), whose address was listed as Polmont Young Offenders Institution, appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday having pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening manner and possessing a knife in public at Stirling Sheriff Court, Viewfield Place, Stirling on October 21, 2019.

The court had requested a report on the progress Aman was making with her community payback order, but were told it was not available.

At a previous appearance the court heard Aman entered Stirling Sheriff Court with her mother and sister, who were witnesses in the trial of Jamie Wallace.

Aman appeared at Falkirk Sheriff Court on Thursday to answer for the threatening behaviour offence she committed at Stirling Sheriff Court

Police attended at the court on an unrelated matter and as Jamie Wallace exited the court the accused had returned to the area outside the front of the court.

She started shouting and swearing at Jamie Wallace, saying “see you, you’re getting done” and “I’m going to get you done”.

Aman was arrested and when police searched her bag they found a kitchen knife with a two-and-a-half inch blade.

Jamie Wallace was on trial at the time for assaulting a member of Aman’s family and she said she had the knife with her for her own protection.

Last year Sheriff John Mundy placed Aman, who had been in custody since October 22 last year, on a supervised community payback order for 18 months with the condition she complete 150 hours unpaid work in six months.

On Thursday Sheriff Christopher Shead continued the case for six weeks to May 27 for a community payback review.
