A MAN has admitted committing stalking offences against his former partner in Dunfermline.

Marek Dobras, 35, bombarded his ex-girlfriend with messages saying he still loved her.

However, by this time he had moved from Fife, was with a new partner who was pregnant and who has since given birth to their child.

Dobras appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court accompanied in the dock by a translator.

Dobras, now of Ivanhoe Place, Stirling, admitted that between January 27 and 29 at Broomhead Drive, Dunfermline, he engaged in course of conduct which caused his former partner fear or alarm by repeatedly sending her text messages and repeatedly making phone calls to her.

Depute fiscal Azrah Yousaf said that over the space of two days Dobras sent 40 to 50 messages.

These included “I would give my life for you” and others about him still loving her.

However, defence solicitor Roshni Joshi said the messages were only sent because her client was concerned about having contact with his child stopped by his ex-partner.

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a community payback order with 140 hours of unpaid work and also a 12-month non-harassment order.
