I have been charged with domestic abuse, accused of threatening behaviour. I was found guilty of domestic violence against the same woman 2 years ago, this was a false accusation. After the case 2 years ago she kept contacting me and would come to my home. When I called the police they just said ignore her. I want this woman to stay away from me and leave me alone. Can I get a restraining order for her. I’m in Scotland.
