Court / Fined for breaching bail conditions

A MAN from Sandwick has been fined £200 after breaching bail conditions just over a week after it was imposed.

Steven Nicholson, of Veester Hill, breached the conditions on Sunday (13 December) by contacting a woman and entering her address.

The 33-year-old appeared from custody at Lerwick Sheriff on Monday (14 December) before being fined and released.

Procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie, who described it as a “blatant breach”, said Nicholson was found in the woman’s bathroom by police officers following a welfare check.

Defence agent Tommy Allan said his client now understands he should not have entered the address.

Honorary sheriff Willie Shannon said it was a “serious breach” and warned Nicholson that disregarding bail conditions in the future could result in more serious trouble.
