Court / Court round-up 7 December 2022

A YOUNG woman from Lerwick was fined £200 and had three penalty points added to her driving licence after police found a multitude of defects on her car during a routine check.

Ashley Milne, of Hoofields, pleaded guilty to the charge when her case called at Lerwick Sheriff Court on Wednesday.

Procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie told the court the 23-year-old’s vehicle had sharp edges of metal protruding from both front wings, the battery was unsecured within the engine bay and the front nearside tyre was worn.

A THIRTY year old woman from Lerwick was fined £200 and ordered to pay £102 in compensation after admitting a charge of shoplifting.

Defending herself at Lerwick Sheriff Court today, Jade Paige offered no explanation for the offence.

The court heard that Paige had taken t-shirts, underwear and socks from Peacocks, on Holmsgarth Road, on the 17 June without paying.

The goods were worth £102 and had not been recovered, procurator fiscal Duncan Mackenzie said.

CAUSING a collision with another vehicle at the Black Gaet junction in April this year cost a Lerwick woman £420 in fines and four penalty points.

Lerwick Sheriff Court heard on Wednesday how Joanne Herculson, of Sandveien, failed to see an oncoming vehicle when turning right at the junction.

No-one was injured in the accident but Herculson’s car was an economic write off.

The 37-year-old pleaded guilty to a charge of driving without due care and attention at the junction of the A970 and the B9073 on 28 April.

Sentencing Herculson, Sheriff Ian Cruickshank expressed the hope that the new road layout, undertaken in September this year, would assist drivers in negotiating the junction.
