Terri-Louise Wilson (30) was said to be going through a bad patch and could not obey the court order when it came to staying away from her ex.

Appearing from custody via video link at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, Wilson admitted breaching her bail conditions by having contact with her former partner on three separate occasions – at her then home address Newton Street, Bo’ness on April 10, an address in Lothian Street, Bo’ness between April 6 and April 8 this year, and in Poplar Street, Grangemouth on August 31 last year.

Sheriff Christopher Shead sentenced her to six months in prison.

Lynn Swan, defence solicitor, said all the offences involved the same man and one incident happened when Wilson was struggling to get her belongings back from him.

It was stated Wilson had been going through a very difficult time.

Miss Swan said: “The relationship is essentially at an end, but it’s been a messy end. Going into custody has been the best thing for her because it’s given her time to reflect about how she can change her life and change direction.”
