A HOMELESS mum who was kindly offered a place to stay by her daughter after release from prison then abused her just three weeks later.

Jane Bradley squared up to her daughter, causing her to fall to the floor, and when taken to the police station, assaulted two officers and was racially abusive to a medic.

Bradley, 48, of no fixed abode, previously admitted that on April 10, at Golfdrum Street, Dunfermline, she behaved in a threatening or abusive manner which was likely to cause a reasonable person to suffer fear or alarm in that she did shout, swear, and utter offensive remarks to her daughter.

Also, at Dunfermline Police Station, she acted in a racially-aggravated manner which caused, or was intended to cause, alarm or distress to a female in respect that she did utter racially-offensive remarks towards her. Also, she assaulted a police constable then in the execution of her duty and did repeatedly kick her on the body, strike her on the head, and scratch her arm to her injury.

And she assaulted a second police constable then in the execution of her duty and seized her hand and pushed her fingers backwards.

Depute fiscal Alistair McDermott told Dunfermline Sheriff Court that about three weeks before the incident, Bradley had been released from prison and went to reside with her daughter in her flat.

The court was told that at about 6pm in the living room of the flat, Bradley began shouting at her daughter after a falling-out and began calling her a "slut, whore and slag".

The accused continued to shout and swear for 15 minutes, squaring up to her daughter and causing her to fall.

While her daughter was on the phone to the police, Bradley continued being aggressive and at around 6.25pm, the accused was arrested and taken to Dunfermline Police Station.

Medics were asked to do an assessment of Bradley after concerns about her having solvents.

During the assessment, she made a racist and derogatory statement towards the medic.

At 10.25pm, officers took her to a cell in order to carry out a strip search. Bradley kicked one constable five times, scraped her fingernails down her arm and struck her to the head. She also grabbed the hand of another constable and pushed her thumb backwards.

Defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said: "Her position is that the matters should be resolved by a custodial sentence today."

Sheriff Charles Macnair said: "You started abusing your daughter when she was giving you housing after the release from custody.

"Then when the police arrived, they took you to the police station and you committed other offences.

"There is no alternative but a custodial sentence."

Bradley was returned to prison to serve the second half of her previous sentence for 150 days and then sentenced to another six months and six days for the new offence.
