Sheriff jails poison pen letter writer

‘Your beliefs are not based on any rational or, indeed, proper basis’ – Sheriff Ireland

AN ‘OBSESSED’ Sound of Kintyre man has been jailed for sending countless poison pen letters.

Joseph Carson sent letters and texts to his elderly 80-year-old mother and her former boyfriend, aged 77, and their friends and neighbours in a bid to bring their relationship to an end.

Carson, who was sentenced to eight months at Paisley Sheriff Court last week, has also been banned from approaching or contacting his mother and her former partner for the next five years.
