AN EARLY release prisoner went to the home of a deaf woman in Dunfermline and began shouting and swearing at her.

The terrified woman fled to a neighbour’s garden and Mark Dolan followed her, claiming that she had injured his mother.

Dolan, 30, of Shore Street, Anstruther, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that on July 4 at Craigston Park, Dunfermline, he acted in an aggressive manner, shouted, swore, made threats to a woman and followed her.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said Dolan had gone to the woman’s house, went into her back garden and started shouting and swearing at her.

“She was terrified and had gone to a neighbour’s house to get away from him,” added the depute.

“The accused also went into the neighbour’s garden and was saying to the complainer that she had caused injury to his mother.

“The neighbour told the accused that the woman was deaf and could not hear him.”

Dolan had responded: “I’m just out of jail and couldn’t give a f***.”

The court heard Dolan is still under a supervised release order until January.

Sheriff Craig McSherry called for reports and Dolan will be sentenced on January 9. He was released on bail.
