A MAN from Mossbank has been given an eight week prison sentence for breaching a court order.
Adam Nelson, of Leaside, previously admitted being in the company of his brother – which was prohibited under the order – on 12 January.
At Lerwick Sheriff Court on Thursday the 33-year-old – who was already serving a prison sentence – was also admonished on a charge relating to the bail address for a curfew.
Defence agent Tommy Allan said the breach of the court order came about when Nelson came across his brother outside a chemist.
The brother was in a bad way at the time and Nelson helped to put him home.
Allan said: “They don’t always get along. But they are still brothers and at that time his act was initially one of compassion.”
Nelson was also found not guilty of stealing an iPad from a Lerwick home on 5 January after a short trial.
