A DUNFERMLINE man has been jailed for domestic abuse offences.

Mark West, 36, of Wedderburn Crescent, appeared for sentencing at Dunfermline Sheriff Court for a series of offences.

He admitted that on July 2 last year, at Blacklaw Road, he breached bail conditions not to approach or contact his former partner.

He also adopted an aggressive manner, threw a television set, repeatedly shouted and swore.

Then, between April 23-24, he contacted his former partner repeatedly and entered a street in Dunfermline that was in breach of bail conditions.

Defence solicitor Alexander Flett said: “He accepts his alcohol problem has led to problems in the relationship.”

Sheriff James MacDonald jailed West for 198 days.

He commented: “This catalogue of offending is nothing short of deplorable.”
