She was given 225 hours of unpaid work, and put under supervision for two years.Anderson was jailed for six years and banned from driving for seven and a half years.
During the GDC hearing, it also emerged that Miss Carruthers had also been convicted at Hamilton Sheriff Court for acting in a threatening and abusive manner, - a fact she did not disclose to the council.

“There is nothing before the committee to indicate Miss Carruthers has reflected on her convictions or develop her insight.”
