A TEENAGER who has yet to complete a community payback order imposed after he admitted assaulting three people has been ordered to complete an additional 10 hours of unpaid work.
Nineteen year old Thomas Drever, of Lerwick’s Hoofields, was ordered to carry out 180 hours of unpaid work last July after narrowly avoiding jail for assaulting a fellow reveller at a high school after-party and then punching a girl and spitting on another in late 2015 and early 2016.
Drever appeared at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Tuesday after falling behind in completing his hours. Honorary sheriff Willie Shannon ordered him to carry out 10 hours of unpaid in addition to the 20 hours he is yet to complete.
The order will be reviewed on 30 August and Drever was granted bail in the meantime.
