Court / Remanded after court appearance

A MAN has been remanded in custody after admitting breaching a non-harassment order.

Marcin Olejniczak, of Lerwick’s Hill Grind, breached the order by contacting the complainer at an address in the town on 16 October.

The 43-year-old appeared from custody at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Monday to admit the offence, which took place while he was on bail.

Procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie said police officers found Olejniczak sleeping in the complainer’s room before arresting him.

Defence agent Tommy Allan said his client was there “at her invitation” and added there were “no issues regarding his behaviour”.

He asked for Olejniczak to be released from custody ahead of a court appearance next Wednesday but Mackenzie opposed bail.

Honorary sheriff Willie Shannon decided to remand Olejniczak in custody until his next court appearance on 27 October, with sentence deferred.
