A SHERIFF wished youngsters could have seen the actions of a woman in court as a warning of drugs.

Kimberley Moscrop, 22, of Hillend Drive, was incohorent and appeared to have no understanding of the proceedings when she appeared from custody in court.

She insisted her lawyer had not put forward her case and complained that her jail sentence was “too harsh” when one had not been passed.

Moscrop refused to be quiet when requested to do by police officers.

She was remanded in custody until August 23 for failing to appear at Jedburgh Sheriff Court on July 25 when she was due to appear on a charge of stealing goods to the value of £500 from Morrisons on November 10.

After Moscrop was escorted from the docks to the cells still shouting and complaining, Sheriff Kevin Drummond said:”I wish some of the kids could see that.

“She is 22 years old and drugs have destroyed her life. She has been coming in here since she was 15 and first it was alcohol and now drugs.

“It is a warning of what can happen to people with that lifestyle.”
