A MAN harassed his mum with phone calls after being banned from contacting her.

Robert McNulty was given bail conditions at Glasgow Sheriff Court on August 14, 2023, not to approach or communicate with his mother, or enter the Sandyhills street her home is in.

But over the following two days, the 44-year-old called her 37 times.

And on August 21, his mum was at home when she heard a bang on the front door at 8.20am.

When she went out to the landing, she saw McNulty walking up the stairs and asked him to leave.

He told her he needed money, and she called the police.

McNulty, of Sandyhills, left before officers arrived. He was traced a short time later and informed cops that the door was open, and his mum let him in.

He was cautioned and stated, “I know, it won’t happen again”.

The following day, he made further calls to his mum, who again called police.

McNulty was cautioned and charged and made no reply. He was taken to Coatbridge police station.

He appeared at Glasgow Sheriff Court on Wednesday for sentencing.

Sheriff Patricia Pryce said: “You have got a horrendous record and a bad record for not complying with court orders.

“You’re currently subject to a community payback order. You’re sort of complying with that so I can deal with this by an alternative to custody.

“Mark my words, if you don’t comply, I will send you to jail.”

He was tagged and ordered to stay within his home from 7pm-7am for 20 weeks.
