A KELTY woman who bombarded her ex-partner with calls and emails has been made subject to an non-harassment order.

Ashley Lewis, 31, of Black Road, Kelty, was also given unpaid work and supervision for her behaviour, which included sending a threatening voicemail to her former partner's dad.

She previously admitted between April 12 and May 9, at an address in Dunfermline, she behaved in a threatening or abusive manner likely to cause a reasonable person fear or alarm, in that she did persistently send her former partner emails and text messages and voicemails which were numerous in number and phoned his father and left an abusive and offensive voicemail.

The court heard that Lewis and the complainer had been in a relationship for two years and had one child together.

The relationship was described as being on and off by police and it came to end in late 2018.

The court was told that since the break-up, the complainer had described the relationship as toxic and the split as not amicable because of issues with care of their daughter.

The former partner complained to police that he received in excess of a 1,000 emails from a number of different addresses which he thought came from Lewis.

Depute fiscal Dev Kapadia said: "She was making attempts to contact him.

"They were not of a threatening nature but caused fear because of the amount of them."

Mr Kapadia explained that the complainer downloaded an app to stop numbers getting through but he was still getting a number of missed calls.

The complainer's father than received a voicemail, which he recognised to be the voice of the accused.

It said: "I suggest you phone me, so you don't have a heart attack and die you f***ing c***".

The court heard the father was so distressed by the voicemail he said it was the "worst thing anyone had ever said to him".

Defence solicitor Peter Robertson explained that the offending had occurred during the mess of the break-up.

"They had been in a hotel on a weekend away after which they parted and they have never reconciled.

"It was not her intention to reconcile but it's the point that her child was taken away.

"She has very much had her life and world turned upside down.

"She has been the subject of emotional abuse from the complainer and will be taking this forward.

"Of course she is remorseful over the comment made to the complainer's father."

Sheriff Charles Macnair said: "This offence was of an abusive manner; sending a number of texts and emails and the abusive voicemail to your former partner's father which seem to be wholly unwarranted.

"I am effectively giving you one last chance."

The sheriff imposed 180 hours of unpaid work, a two year non-harassment order and two years of supervision.
