A HELENSBURGH woman has “turned the corner” after committing a series of offences in 2016 and 2017, a court has heard.

Claire Mundie, 34, of East King Street, appeared at Dumbarton Sheriff Court last week to be sentenced on charges of assault and disorderly behaviour and for reviews of community payback orders imposed for two earlier offences dating back to July 2016.

Her lawyer, Douglas Thomson, told the court: “Everything seems to be going in the right direction at long last.

“She seems to have turned the corner.”

On July 5, 2016, Mundie shouted, swore, spat at police and told them she had Aids in an incident at her home and en route to Clydebank police office, where she also kicked a police officer and tried to head-butt him.

On September 24, 2016, she repeatedly kicked and banged on the door of a property in Maitland Court, threatened violence and put two women in a state of fear and alarm.

She also failed to appear at a court hearing in Dumbarton on April 19, 2017.

And on September 21, 2017, she shouted, swore and acted aggressively at Dumbarton Central railway station, and on the same day punched her ex-partner at a house in Helensburgh’s Redclyffe Gardens.

Sheriff Maxwell Hendry said there would be no further reviews of community payback orders imposed in connection with the two oldest cases.

On the more recent matters, he admonished her on one case and told her to do 160 hours of unpaid work within nine months on the other.
