A NORTH Berwick woman who admitted being drunk in charge of a child has received an admonishment.

Kylie Fender had previously pleaded guilty to four charges without receiving any legal advice, Edinburgh Sheriff Court heard last week.

Fender, 30, admitted to two charges of acting aggressively and to being in charge of the child at an address in Dunbar in March.

She had also pleaded guilty to damaging property belonging to another by throwing a police alarm out of a window at her home address at Craigleith Avenue later the same day.

But when the case called at court last week, her defence agent Rebecca Weissgerber told Sheriff Adrian Cottam she wanted to retract all the guilty pleas on behalf of her client.

Following a short adjournment Fender returned to the dock and pled guilty to just three offences and her not guilty plea to damaging property belonging to another, namely the police alarm, was accepted by the Crown.

Sheriff Cottam heard Fender is under the care of the social work department and decided he did not need to punish her any further.

She admitted acting aggressively at Floors Terrace, Dunbar, and Craigleith Avenue, North Berwick, on March 19. She also pleaded guilty to being in charge of a child while drunk on the same date.
