A MAN from Lerwick has been remanded in custody after pleading guilty to breaching bail conditions imposed on him at Lerwick Sheriff Court in December last year.
In court on Monday, 55-year-old Anthony Jamieson, of 7 Norgaet, admitted contacting and meeting the complainer in a pending assault case on two occasions during July.
Following a court appearance on 12 December 2019, Jamieson had been released on bail with the condition not to approach or contact the complainer.
Sentence for breaching bail conditions was deferred for reports until 12 August and Jamieson was remanded in custody.
In a second case at Lerwick Sheriff Court, 24-year-old Kyle Swannie, with an address of HM Prison Grampian, appeared on a charge of breach of the peace.
Swannie made no plea and was committed for further examination. He was remanded in custody.
