    Accused's record "awash with wasted opportunities" says sheriff

    A MAN was jailed for four months today by a sheriff who described his record as being "awash with wasted opportunities."
    Gary Robertson's latest offence was to try to dupe police who called at his home in Wick with an arrest warrant on July 2.
    He gave police his brother's details... but the deception was soon discovered.
    Robertson, 30, admitted attempting to defeat the ends of justice when he appeared from custody at Wick Sheriff Court.
    Reviewing the accused's record, Sheriff Andrew Berry, commented on his failure to take help and guidance, and co-operate with the court.
    The sheriff added that he was not prepared to ask hardworking social workers to have to contend with Robertson had a payback order been imposed and added: "Giving the police false details is indictative of your general do-what-you please attitude. You knew there was a warrant out for your arrest yet you wasted police time by giving false details."
    Sheriff Berry admonished Robertson, of 57 Glamis Road, Wick, on two other offences of reset and vandalism which he admitted, in order to give him "a clean slate" when he was released from prison but warned him that any resumption of offending, would almost inevitably mean a further custodial sentence..
