A Rosyth man has been sentenced for his abusive behaviour towards two different partners.

Phillip Kelly, 35, of Willow Crescent, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court having admitted that between May 31 and June 23 last year, at addresses in Cowdenbeath and Rosyth, he engaged in abusive behaviour towards his former partner.

He pushed her on the body, causing her to fall back, shouted, swore, seized her by the body and pulled her out of his house.

On May 31, in Cowdenbeath, he assaulted a 16-year-old girl by seizing her hand.

Kelly also admitted that between February 1, 2022, and March 25 last year in Rosyth, he engaged in abusive behaviour towards his then partner.

In the presence of children, he spat at her, repeatedly shouted, swore and used derogatory language towards her.

Defence solicitor Shona Westwood said: “He appreciates he should not have acted in that way and that he should have dealt with matters much differently.”

Sheriff Francis Gill imposed two community payback orders with a total of 200 hours of unpaid work and 18 months of supervision.

The sheriff also made Kelly subject to two non-harassment orders.
