A GALASHIELS man who breached his bail conditions twice in the same day has been given a three months jail sentence at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

Thirty two year old Robert Charters had been ordered to stay away from the home of his neighbour Maxwell White in Church Square, Galashiels.

But on two occasions on May 20 he approached Mr White.

At 3.30pm he knocked on his door and asked to borrow a phone and at 6.30pm he walked past the window waving and was told by a visiting nurse to leave.

Sheriff Donald Ferguson told Charters he had no business contacting the individual and due to the background of the case he said a custodial sentence was inevitable.

The prison sentence was back-dated to May 21 when Charters was first remanded in custody in connection with the matter.
