A 36-year-old Inverness man who pushed his partner while she was holding a baby has been jailed for six months.

Craig Cornish, of Carse Court, had been jailed for six months on Monday, June 15 at Inverness Sheriff Court, after admitting a breach of bail, resisting arrest at Raigmore Hospital, threatening behaviour and spitting in a police vehicle on June 14.

But Sheriff Gary Aitken decided to make the new sentence concurrent and not consecutive to the previous term, so Cornish’s earliest release date in September would not be put back.

Fiscal depute Martina Eastwood said Cornish and his partner Sharlene MacLean had an argument on May 13 over money.

He seized her by the neck and pushed her back.

Defence solicitor Marc Dickson said his client had relapsed into drug use to cope with recurring pain as a result of serious injuries a few years ago.
