Good evening – it was a varied day in courtrooms across our areas.

The owner of a bulldog has admitted her pet was dangerously out of control after it attacked a woman leaving her with a wound which needed hospital treatment.

Stephanie Roy’s large dog ran wild and attacked a lady who was walking her own much smaller dog in Fraserburgh’s Topping Gardens on December 5.

It bit the woman’s finger, drawing blood and leaving a wound that needed hospital attention.

The force of the dog’s lurch also knocked the lady to the ground where she fell upon her own pooch before fleeing home in tears.

Her wound was treated at Fraserburgh accident and emergency.

Roy. 32, pled guilty at Peterhead Sheriff Court to being in charge of a dog that was dangerously out of control in that it bit, injured and knocked the Fraserburgh woman to the ground.

Sentencing on Roy, of Fraserburgh’s Topping Gardens, was deferred for four weeks for consideration and investigation of the breed-dependant legalities.

A sex offender has been jailed after hiding a secret mobile phone inside a DVD player in his basement.

Philip Main had previously been handed a court order which banned him from owning devices capable of accessing the internet or taking pictures, but when the police learned he had bought a phone online, they confronted him.

The 38-year-old led officers down to his basements where he pulled a DVD player out from under a storage box, unscrewed and took it apart and revealed his phone.

And the officers also discovered an SD card in his bedroom containing indecent images of children.

Sheriff Morag McLaughlin ordered Main to be jailed for two years and made him subject to the notification requirements of the Sexual Offences Act for 10 years.
