A WOMAN is accused of sending abusive messages to a Greenock secondary school threatening to disclose personal information about a teacher.

Bernadette McCreadie repeatedly stated in emails to Notre Dame High that the alleged victim was an unfit teacher, prosecutors claim.

McCreadie, 51, discussed the complainer's personal life in the messages and threatened to disclose information about her personal life to others, it is alleged.

The alleged offence was committed on December 21 last year, the Crown claims.

McCreadie, of Burns Road, is set to stand trial at the sheriff court in October after solicitor Aidan Gallagher pleaded not guilty to the charge on her behalf during a hearing.
