A LOCHGELLY man was found in a car with his former partner when there was a non-harassment order in place.

And Chad Munnoch has been jailed for six months for ignoring the order.

Munnoch, 22, of South Street, appeared from custody at Dunfermline Sheriff Court.

He admitted that being subject to a non-harassment order in relation to his former partner, he breached this by being with her in a car on March 2 at Cairneyhill Road, Dunfermline.

Depute fiscal, Katherine Fraser, said that police on mobile patrol stopped a black BMW at 12.25am.

When checks were carried out by officers, they found out that there was a non-harassment order in place.

Defence solicitor, Stephen Morrison, said: “He was contacted by her by text asking to resurrect their relationship.

“It is her vehicle and he was there at her invitation. He finds himself where he is because of stupidity.”

Sheriff Craig McSherry told Munnoch: “A non-harassment order is a very serious matter and nothing has been done to remove it.”

He imposed a six months jail sentence.
