Mr Barclay has been sentenced to 2 years and 3 months imprisonment after pouring bleach on his pregnant ex-partner. The attack happened last year, and the man had originally admitted to the police that he had thrown water over his ex-partner, however her skin started burning.
This attack took place as the woman returned to his home to collect her belongings and he poured the bleach on her out of a window. Mr Barclay who is currently in HMP Perth admitted the assault in Dundee Sheriff Court. Mr Barclay’s defence solicitor has stated; “the complainer has attended to see him on a number of occasions at Perth prison…He’s clearly spent a significant amount of time thinking about his behaviour and has expressed those thoughts to the complainer and indeed me.”
