A Lossiemouth man who was released on a restriction of liberty order at Elgin Sheriff Court last Thursday breached it just one day later.

As a result, Lewis Smith of Forth Place spent the weekend in police custody and appeared at Inverness Sheriff Court today.

The 28-year-old admitted breaching the court order.

He also admitted possessing a small amount of cannabis when he was routinely searched by the police officers who arrested him.

Defence solicitor Matthew O'Neill said Smith had gone round to a friend's house, accepted an offer of some cannabis and had got intoxicated.

Smith, who admitted previous convictions, was arrested as he left the St Margaret's Place property after his deadline to be home.

Jailing him for two months, Sheriff Gordon Fleetwood told Smith: "You were placed on a restriction of liberty order and it lasted one day."
