A GULLANE man has been admonished after he admitted acting aggressively towards his former partner.

Stuart Kerr pleaded guilty last August and sentence had been deferred for him to be of good behaviour.

Kerr, of Broadgate, shouted, swore and acted aggressively towards his former partner during an incident in Musselburgh last year.

The 27-year-old also admitted pushing the woman up against a wall at the Whitehill Avenue property.

Kerr’s not guilty pleas to seizing the woman by the neck and repeatedly striking her on the head were accepted by the Crown.

During last Monday’s hearing, Kerr was found to have been of good behaviour.

Sheriff Alistair Noble said: “I indicated on the last occasion if you had been of good behaviour I would admonish you, so that is what I will do.”

Kerr admitted behaving in a threatening or abusive manner by shouting, swearing and acting aggressively towards his former partner and pushing her against a wall on May 27 last year.
