Wigtown woman jailed

A Wigtown 
woman who refused to do a community service payback 
order was jailed for two weeks at Stranraer Sheriff Court this week.

Thirty-four-year-old Christine McCreadie was given the order after causing a scene in Dashwood Square, Newton Stewart, and threatening a police sergeant in September.

But as she didn’t turn up for community service and could not pay the alternative of a fine Sheriff Kenneth Robb’s only option was a custodial sentence.
