Robertson made sexual remarks and gestures towards a woman at Greenbank Court, Tamfourhill

The court heard Robertson suffered from “anxiety and depression” but not “acutely”.

It was also stated the sexual element in the case was “not significant” and Robertson would not be required to place himself on the sex offenders register.

Sheriff Christopher Shead ordered Robertson, 6 to 12 Greenbank Court, Tamfourhill, to pay the woman £200 compensation to be paid back at a rate of £50 per month.
