Keir Johnston has been jailed for violent offences on the Isle of Colonsay

A man has been sentenced to four years and six months in prison after being convicted of violent offences on the Isle of Colonsay.

Keir Johnston, aged 39, pled guilty to the charge of using violence against a woman following a trial at the High Court in Glasgow in May 2024. He returned for sentencing on Thursday, 6 June, 2024.

Chief Inspector Simon Shanks said: “Johnston is a violent individual who is now being held accountable for his despicable behaviour towards his victim.

Their experience will undoubtedly have left a lasting impact however I hope that today’s outcome provides her with some degree of closure and helps them to move on with her life.

We would encourage anyone who has, or is experiencing this type of crime, to have the confidence to come forward and make a report to Police Scotland on 101. There is no time limit on reporting and no matter when the abuse occurred you will be listened to, you will be supported and together we will bring the perpetrator to justice.”
