fluffy2097: You'd have to ask a Lawyer in Scotland why he wasn't charged.It certainly seems like they don't want to throw the book at the guy, since it's been reduced to a summery hearing.Maybe they just wanted to make him go away and get mental help, rather then charge him with a crime.

Walker: mediablitz: Walker: The UK gets wackier everyday. Staring is now a crime there.Maybe the whole stalking charge has something to do with it, beyond the staring?Sorry, didn't see any mention of "stalking" in the article, just staring.Dogan Arslan is accused of staring at her and her Pollokshaws Road office from a parked car outside.The 47-year-old from Battlefield, in Glasgow's southside, is alleged to have carried out the offence between October and December 2012.Papers from Glasgow Sheriff Court allege that he "engaged in course of conduct" which caused people in the office, including the SNP politician, "fear and alarm".It is claimed Arslan "repeatedly loitered within a parked motor vehicle in the vicinity of the office premises" and stared at the offices and Ms Sturgeon.
