A WOMAN who annoyed her neighbours by playing loud music at her Macmerry home will be sentenced next month.

Janette Johnston repeatedly played the music too loudly, causing neighbours on St Germains Terrace to complain.

But during the confrontation between neighbours Janet Brown and David Merry, Johnston began shouting and swearing at the pair.

Johnston also shouted offensive remarks which were sexual in nature and uttered threats of violence.

The 28-year-old appeared in the dock at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Monday, where she pleaded guilty to the charge.

Sheriff Ross deferred sentence to December 17 for the preparation of background reports and a restriction of liberty order assessment to be carried out.

Johnston admitted engaging in a course of conduct which caused Janet Brown and David Merry fear and alarm by repeatedly playing music at excessive volumes, shouting, swearing, uttering offensive remarks and sexually offensive remarks, and uttering threats of violence at her home address on October 8 and December 1 last year.
