A LOCHGELLY man failed to stay out of Dunfermline after being ordered to do so by the court.

Reece Morgan also failed to comply with a home curfew.

Morgan, 25, previously of Crossgates, now of Garry Street, Lochgelly, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court and admitted two offences.

On July 4 last year, he breached a bail condition not to enter Dunfermline and was in the High Street there.

Then, on August 2, he breached a bail condition for a home curfew when he was outwith his address.

Sheriff Robert More said Morgan had been candid to a social worker regarding his attitude to court orders.

The sheriff asked Morgan if he wanted to go back to prison. “No”, he replied.

The sheriff pointed out that he had been released from jail early and could end up back behind bars if he offended again.

For these offences, the sheriff imposed a community payback order with 40 hours of unpaid work.

In September, Morgan was jailed for 12 months for assaulting his pregnant partner in Dunfermline then falsely claiming he had swallowed a spork which led to him being taken to hospital and wasting police time.

Sheriff Lindsay Foulis said Morgan had simply made up a “cock and bull story”.

As well as jailing him, he also imposed a non-harassment order for 18 months.
