A teenager, sentenced to a Community Payback Order, has been warned than any non-compliance will cost her her liberty.

Eighteen-year-old Caitlin Thomson, of Leishman Place, admitted assaulting three police officers at a house in Eildon Road on September 25 last year.

Jedburgh Sheriff Court heard she kicked a male officer and a female constable on the leg, and then bit another officer on the leg.

Thomson was sentenced to a 12-month Community Payback Order with 60 hours of unpaid work.

Sheriff Kevin Drummond warned the accused: “Let me make it perfectly clear to you that any non-compliance will cost you your liberty.”
