Freed prisoner Adam Bradley admits Kilmarnock robbery

A man who carried out an armed robbery just seven days after being released from a previous prison term has been jailed for four-and-half years.

Adam Bradley, 23, escaped with £280 from a Coral bookmakers in Kilmarnock after threatening staff with a knife.

He was later identified by police and admitted assault and robbery charges.

The High Court in Glasgow heard that at the time of the robbery, Bradley had been free for just one week from a 11-month sentence for driving offences.

Jailing him, Lord Bonomy told Bradley, who is from Kilmarnock, that the public "deserved to be protected" from him.

The judge also ordered Bradley to serve the remaining 204 days from his previous prison term.
