A DALGETY BAY woman has appeared in court for stalking offences against her sister-in-law.

Donna Anderson had been in the dock previously for similar offences against her husband after they separated.

She had wanted them to get back together and bombarded him with messages which led to a non-harassment order.

Anderson then turned her attention to her husband’s sister.

At Dunfermline Sheriff Court, 46-year-old Anderson, of Frankfield Crescent, admitted that between January 22 and November 13, at Dover Heights, Dunfermline, she attended repeatedly at the woman’s home uninvited, drove a car past her house repeatedly and waited outside for her to return.

She also admitted she breached bail conditions on January 16 when she entered Dover Heights, Dunfermline, and contacted the woman.

Defence solicitor Russel McPhate said: “She was keen to rekindle what she thought was the perfect marriage. She had made desperate attempts to speak to him.”

His client had then tried to “latch on” to her husband’s sister.

He added: “She didn’t see what see was doing wrong but clearly she was speaking to somebody who didn’t want anything to do with her.”

Sheriff Craig McSherry imposed a community payback order with 140 hours of unpaid work and a two-year non-harassment order.
