A killer has been handed a 32-month jail term after he attempted to rob a young Aberdeen FC footballer at knife-point.

Shaun Stewart, 33, previously known as Paton, and Lana McAllister, 30, known as Smart, 30, were convicted following a week-long trial at Aberdeen Sheriff Court.

The jury heard the pair came across young Dons player David Dangana while he was in his car close to his home on Fairlie Street in Aberdeen on August 9 last year.

And yesterday Stewart, who previously served six years of a decade-long sentence in a young offenders’ institution for culpable homicide over the death of Kemnay dad Dean Jamieson in 2006, was jailed for 32 months.

Smart, of Danestone Circle, Aberdeen, was handed 300 hours of unpaid work for her role in the incident, as well as a two-year supervision order and a 12-month restriction of liberty order as an alternative to a custodial sentence.

They were found guilty of striking the window of the car Mr Dangana was travelling in, repeatedly punching him on the head, threatening him with violence by brandishing a knife and injuring him with the intent to rob him.

The offence was committed while acting alongside Kyle Cameron, who previously pled guilty to punching Mr Dangana with the intent to rob him and was handed a 26-month jail term.

Stewart, a prisoner of HMP Grampian, was also found guilty of possession of a knife.

Solicitor Lewis Shand said Smart had demonstrated regret, while Stewart’s solicitor said her client had served the equivalent of almost a two year sentence through being remanded since September.

Sheriff Morag McLaughlin described it as an “extremely serious matter”, adding: “The victim was terrified.”
