A woman was fined £300 at Lanark Sheriff Court last Wednesday for shouting and swearing at an ex-partner’s sister.

The court heard that Andrea Rautenberg put her face close to the woman’s, pointing her finger and shouting ‘I’m going to get you’, placing the woman in a state of fear and alarm.

The incident happened while her ex-partner was dropping off the children outside the post office in Kirkmhuirhill in May last year.

Rautenberg, 35, of Craignethan View, Kirkmuirhill, admitted behaving in a threatening or absuive manner, uttering threats of violence.

“Emotions were running high,” her solicitor, Archie Hill, told the court in mitigation.
