A TRANENT woman has been ordered to spend her evenings inside her home for the next three months.

Melissa Mason, of Muirpark Wynd, admitted making a menacing phone call to a woman before going on to vandalise a vehicle seven days later.

Mason made the phone call to Jodie Mason in September last year whereby she made grossly indecent or obscene comments to her.

Mason also damaged a Hyundai vehicle by attacking it with a hammer during the ongoing situation between the women.

The 31-year-old had pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing at Edinburgh Sheriff Court and she returned for sentencing last Wednesday.

Sheriff Peter McCormack placed Mason on a restriction of liberty order for the next 88 days.

The order means the offender must spend the hours between 9pm and 7am each day within her home address.

Sheriff McCormack relaxed the order for one week between June 20 and 27 as Mason had a pre-booked holiday on those dates.

Mason pleaded guilty to making a phone call to Jodie Mason that was grossly offensive or indecent in character by verbally abusing her and threatening her with violence on September 29 last year.

She also admitted maliciously damaging a vehicle by striking it with a hammer at Prestonfield Terrace, Edinburgh, on October 6 last year.
