An Irvine teenager has been jailed for more than a year after admitting to assaulting and injuring another teen, threatening his girlfriend and her family, behaving in a threatening or abusive manner, and breaching an ASBO and several bail conditions.

The 16-year-old, who cannot be named for legal reasons, appeared at Kilmarnock Sheriff Court last week from custody and pleaded guilty to three charges.

The boy had previously admitted to eight other charges dating back to April and May of this year but the sentences had been deferred.

The teen assaulted a 17-year-old boy on August 13 during a bus journey on Pennyburn Road in Kilwinning.

He uttered threats of violence, repeatedly punched the boy on the head and body, and covered his mouth to his injury.

On the same date, the teen repeatedly shouted, swore and engaged in a fight with witnesses.

The teen also failed without reasonable excuse to comply with a bail condition requiring him to be within his home address between 7pm-7am on three occasions.

On April 15 and 16 at an address in Irvine, the teenager threatened violence towards his then girlfriend, threatened violence towards members of her family, threw a TV set down a flight of stairs, repeatedly refused to leave the property when asked by her and threatened to assault her in phone calls.

He also broke bail conditions by entering properties he wasn’t supposed to be in and breached an ASBO made in January which prevented him from entering the Rivergate Shopping Centre.

The 16-year-old was given three one-month, one two-month, one fourmonth, and one six-month jail sentences, all to run consecutive to each other.
