A Cowdenbeath woman who was involved in a horrific attack on an elderly disabled man in his own home has been jailed.

Jacqueline Allan, 38, had initially avoided a jail sentence but did not do any of her unpaid work and also did not pay a penny of the £1,000 compensation to her victim.

Allan, of Quarry Road, appeared at Dunfermline Sheriff Court by video-link to be sentenced again and was jailed for 15 months.

Last July, she was put on a community payback order with 150 hours of unpaid work. She was also ordered to pay the victim £1000 compensation.

Her co-accused was jailed for 30 months.

The victim, who had previously suffered two strokes and only has one eye, was battered on the head with a walking stick.

During the assault he was also struck on his remaining eye.

The shocking incident occurred after Allan went to the man’s door saying she was homeless and had no money.

Once inside she demanded cash then went to get her partner. They returned together and robbed the man.

Kevin Lusk, 39, of Quarry Court, Cowdenbeath, was jailed for 30 months.

The pair only submitted guilty pleas after the victim had been given his evidence at a trial.

Lusk admitted that on September 5, 2020, at Factory Road, Cowdenbeath, he assaulted the man, demanded money from him, struck him on the head with a walking stick to his injury and robbed him of a wallet, £280 in cash and cigarettes.

Allan admitted stealing the wallet and cash.

At the original sentencing, Sheriff Susan Duff had described Allan as a “calculating” individual who had “cynically” tried to shift the blame on to the victim by portraying him as a sexual predator.

She told Allan: “You inveigled your way into this man’s home. This was an elderly man, minding his own business at home.”

The sheriff repeated her comments last month when she revoked the community payback order and remanded Allan in custody for reports.
