A BRAVE woman who suffered years of domestic abuse at that hands of her husband says he’s got ‘everything he deserves’ after he was found guilty.

Scott Flemming, 54, will have to complete community service and undergo a programme to address his attitudes after he was found guilty of threatening or abusive behaviour and assaulting his ex wife after trial last month.

Flemming, of Eglinton Place , was found guilty in September of repeatedly shouting, swearing and uttering offensive remarks at an address in Treesbank, Kilwinning between October 7, 2010 and March 31, 2019.

The Procurator Fiscal’s complaint states he also seized her by the throat, kicked her on the body and pushed her – with both charges aggravated by involving abuse towards his ex.

After he was sentenced this month, the woman told the Times she didn’t know how she tolerated her ex husband’s behaviour for so long.

She said: “I’m still dealing with Women’s Aid and victim support and had been waiting for details from the Procurator Fiscal. He’s got two years non harassment order so he’s not allowed to come near me, and 80 hours community service.

“At first I was a wee bit numb with the outcome but then it sunk in and I asked more questions. He deserves everything he gets, I hate him. I’ve had to get cameras and CCTV everything. It’s been a nightmare.

“I was ready for the court case because for a year it was put off due to Covid. I went in there and I’ve had nothing praise for how I dealt with it. Everything his defence threw at me I threw back. I’m glad everything is by with.

“God knows how I put up with it, I’ll never be able to answer that question.”

When he returned to court this month [October 13], Flemming was sentenced to a community payback order including two years of supervision and will have to take part in the Caledonia Programme which addresses domestic offending. He was also given a non harassment order for two years.
