Prison for Allars Bank man

AFTER George Martin appeared unsteady in the dock and admitted he had been drinking, he spent lunchtime in the cells at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

The 38-year-old muttered obscenities as he was handcuffed and led away.

Martin, of Allars Bank, was jailed for a total of seven months.

He was sentenced to two months’ imprisonment after being found in contempt of court – added to a five-month jail term imposed for behaving in a threatening or abusive manner in Dickson Street on May 11, 2011.
