Two teenagers who had their sentences deferred for good behaviour were admonished at Rothesay Sheriff Court on Monday morning.

Garry Ian Willcock (17), address given as 16 Columshill Street, and Tavis Duncan Rodgers (17) address given as 11 Blain Terrace, both pleaded guilty to behaving in a disorderly manner, shouting and swearing, uttering threats, repeatedly kicking a fence and committing a breach of the peace at Havelock Terrace on July 12 of last year.

Sentencing had been deferred to allow the teenagers to be of good behaviour, and Sheriff Ruth Anderson was satisfied that this had been the case. In admonishing the pair, Sheriff Anderson commented: “I trust this will bring your potential criminal careers to an end. I do not want to see you again in this, or any other, criminal court.”
