An Inverness man who broke into a locked car on Christmas Day had sentence deferred for a drug treatment and testing order (DTTO) assessment.
Peter MacAllister (41), of Telford Street, had previously appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court on Boxing Day when a background report was ordered.
He admitted forcing open a vehicle in Laurel Avenue with intent to steal from it.
But defence solicitor Willie Young persuaded the sheriff to defer sentence despite his client admitting previous convictions, many for dishonesty.
Mr Young added: “He has been out of trouble for some time. The social work report suggests a DTTO assessment.”
