Warrant issued after Dundee woman fails to turn up for court hearing

Warrant issued after Dundee woman fails to turn up for court hearing

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of a woman who failed to appear in court for a second time on a charge of making a false accusation.

Mhairi Douglas, 35, of Clepington Street, was due to appear in court charged with falsely accusing Kieran McInearney of vandalism at Clepington Street on May 14 last year by reporting to police that he had attended her home in breach of his bail conditions not to approach her and that he had thrown a brick at her window and smashed it.

Douglas had previously failed to appear for an earlier trial diet in the case and solicitor Lesley Beats told the court it was because she had been threatened by people who came to her door the previous day, telling her not to give evidence.

The solicitor said Douglas had called 999 to report the matter to police and an intermediate diet had been fixed for that to be checked and for consideration of contempt of court.

Sheriff John Rafferty granted a warrant.
