Edinburgh courts hand down sentences last month for crimes including

Edinburgh’s courts dished out sentences last month for crimes including domestic abuse, possessing child sex abuse images, and one man was sent to jail for murdering his wife.

A firefighter escaped a driving ban and instead was handed penalty points and a fine after he drove his car through a give way junction and crashed into a truck carrying more than 250,000 eggs while travelling home from a family holiday, leaving his wife and two family members with serious injuries.

And, a disabled man who smashed a laptop over the head of his terrified partner during a shocking campaign of domestic abuse escaped a jail sentence. Ross Queripel, 27, was instead placed on a two-year supervision order and will have stay within his home between 7pm and 7am for the next four months as part of a restriction of liberty order.
