A FIFTY one year old accused of a domestic assault has been ordered to stay away from his partner after appearing at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday.
Anthony Jamieson, of 5 Stouts Court, Lerwick, is alleged to have seized hold of the woman and repeatedly punched her on the head to her injury. He is also accused of verbally abusing her and shouting at her at an address in the town on Sunday.
Jamieson was granted bail and his case was continued until 6 January. Procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie had special conditions attached to his bail ensuring he does not approach the complainer or attend her address.
Meanwhile, a 17 year old man – who cannot be named for legal reasons – has been banned from the road after pleading guilty to driving offences.
The man, from the West Side of Shetland, admitted driving without due care or attention on Quendale Road, near the junction with Quendale Farm, on Friday.
He lost control of his car, allowing it to leave the road and collide with a bus shelter – causing damage to both the vehicle and shelter.
The man also admitted failing to report the accident to police, and refusing to provide a blood sample at Lerwick Police Station on Saturday.
Sentence was deferred until 20 January. Honorary sheriff Willie Shannon disqualified him from driving in the meantime. The vehicle will be held by the authorities until then, with the fiscal seeking its permanent forfeiture.
A man from Dunrossness was remanded in custody after reappearing in private over allegations of shoplifting, assault, robbery and resisting arrest.
Thirty three year old George Anthony Hogg appeared from custody and made no plea or declaration and was fully committed for trial.
