A DUNBAR man has been ordered to wear an electronic tag after he made threats of violence towards his mother and father.

George Williamson appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court on September 28, 2022, where he was granted bail and told he could not approach his parents or enter the town’s Victoria Street.

But hours after leaving the court, the 21-year-old turned up at the couple’s home and, after demanding entry to their property and being refused, he threw stones at a window.

Williamson then uttered threats of violence towards the pair and also challenged his father to fight with him.

Williamson, of the town’s Floors Terrace, appeared back in the dock at the city centre court last Wednesday, where he was sentenced on the offence after previously pleading guilty.

He also admitted to a charge of breaching the conditions of an anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) placed on him on March 6 last year when he entered Victoria Street without permission on July 28 last year.

Sheriff Kevin McCarron placed Williamson under the supervision of the local social work department for the next 12 months and imposed an electronic monitoring order on him.

He will have to wear an electronic tagging device and stay within his home address between 9pm and 7am each night for the next three months.
