A man from the Morningside area of Edinburgh has been banned after being caught.

Joseph Kelly from Belhaven Terrace was walking along Morningside Road when he was stopped by two police officers and immediately taken into custody.

Kelly later pleaded guilty to two offenses despite only being charged with one. Sheriff Henry Hauld took his guilty pleas into consideration before banning him and ordering to stay within his home address between 8pm and 6am for the next 80 days.

Joseph Kelly thanked the Sheriff who then adjourned the case.

“I’ll not do that again!” joked Kelly as he left Edinburgh Sheriff Court.
