Britain’s oldest stalker has been spared jail for a second time after pestering the woman who dumped him for a younger man.
Andrew Trimble, 81, was given a non-harassment order last year for stalking May Fernie, 79
He was annoyed when she told him she had met someone else.
But less than two months after being in court, he phoned the pensioner from a pub, swearing at her and calling her names.
Trimble, from Garrowhill, Glasgow, appeared at the city’s sheriff court last month where he pled guilty to a second stalking charge between last June and July.
He admitted putting notes through her door, going to her house uninvited and making threats, reports the Daily Record .
The retired bookie also pled guilty to phoning her on October 2, 2015, and making offensive remarks.
Yesterday, Sheriff Anthony Deutch told the OAP: “I ought to be sending you to prison.
“But I take account of your age therefore I am going to impose a period of supervision which will last for nine months.”
The sheriff also ordered Trimble to stay in his home between 8pm and 8am.
