Jury is dismissed in pianist trialmain
The trial of a lecturer at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland has been halted after the sheriff ruled it risked damaging his health.
Graeme McNaught, a concert pianist, is accused of behaving in a threatening and abusive manner towards his former partner, the popular author Janice Galloway. Ms Galloway told the court she feared becoming a victim of revenge porn.
A doctor and psychiatrist have now ruled that McNaught is unfit to continue facing trial.
The sheriff dismissed the jury and will now decide alone whether he committed the alleged offence.
