A sheriff’s court in Hamilton has found that Graeme McNaught did act in a threatening and abusive manner towards his former partner, the author Janice Galloway. McNaught, 54, had threatened to expose naked pictures of his ex-partner, taken while she was pregnant with their son.

The sheriff declared that he was satisfied five charges had been proven against McNaught after the trial was suspended over fears for the defendant’s mental health. He was found unfit to be given a criminal conviction and will face the court again in a month’s time.

McNaught, a concert pianist, is a lecturer at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

    Indeed No means No.

      This is a very sick man. I read a few of his posts related to Ms. Galloway and I can only hope that she and her child can somehow break free of this man before he does them serious harm. Women, be very careful about who you let into your life, you could end up with a nutter like this. And, as we have seen all too clearly if one even glances at the news, there is nowhere in the world from Syria to Scotland where women are truly valued and considered fully equal to men; it is merely the degree to which the societies allow them to run riot.
