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.
