A grave digger who made threatening and abusive comments to a woman and a man at houses on Low Askomil has been warned he faces custody.

Stuart Graham, 40, of 47, Davaar Avenue Campbeltown had pleaded not guilty to two charges of behaving in a threatening or abusive manner on November 21 last year.

During his trial, Cambpeltown Sheriff Court heard from three witnesses and a policeman about Graham’s behaviour from 8pm that evening.

Giving evidence, the woman said that after Graham had shouted at her he said he was going to see that f****** p****.

A row later that evening at another house was witnessed by a second man, who also gave evidence.

Graham’s defence solicitor Reuben Murdanaigum said it was a sad situation and that his client had previously served a prison sentence.

Graham was sentenced to 10 months jail in December 2016 for the ancient charge of Hamesucken. He served just over two months and was released last February.

Sheriff Patrick Hughes told Graham custody is a possibility, before calling for reports and stating bail conditions must be obeyed.

Sentence was deferred until Thursday March 8.
