Simon Hutchison, defence solicitor, said: “He has two daughters aged five and four and is hoping to spend Christmas with them.”

The court heard Hughes had been remanded in custody and had multiple breaches of his restriction of liberty order.

Sheriff Simon Collins QC deferred sentence on Hughes, 26 Greenmount Drive, Shieldhill, until January 27 next year for a criminal justice social work report and released him on bail until that date.
