Mum ban for threat mail son.

A MAN who sent threatening letters to his mother was yesterday banned from ever contacting her again.

Francis Richardson sent hate mail to mum Jacqueline after a row over an insurance pay-out.

In one letter, he drew a woman with a hatchet in her head.

Prosecutor Carol Ferguson told Glasgow Sheriff Court yesterday: 'She clearly believed her son was capable of carrying out these threats.'

Richardson, 25, who admitted the intimidation, accepted a non-harassment order, which bans any contact with his mum.

The court heard the row began when Richardson, of Westport, Lanark, received a pounds 6800 insurance pay-out after a burglary at his home in 2003.

He was in jail at the time and asked his mum to take care of the cheque.

Richardson used pounds 1200 of the cash, but when he asked for the rest, his mum said it was gone.

Richardson sent the letters to his mum's home in Bishopbriggs, near Glasgow, between March and June last year.
