Repeat Grangemouth offender back in jail after threatening to ‘smash up’ home
James Docherty (29), 13c Kingseat Avenue, Grangemouth, behaved threateningly in Telford Square on July 12 by shouting, swearing and acting in an aggressive manner. He also breached a bail condition by contacting a woman there on December 1. The court heard Docherty called the woman a “slag” on July 12 before kicking a mop, a bucket and a door, and threatening to “smash up” the property.
His defence solicitor said Docherty was imprisoned in February and released in May, and has a difficulty with alcohol misuse. He was jailed for 180 days and will be supervised for three years.
