Disobeying his probation orders has one man racking up time in jail.
Bruce Kane Janvier appeared in St. Albert Provincial Court Monday via CCTV from the Edmonton Remand Centre and pleaded guilty to property mischief, two counts of breach of probation as well as breach of a protection order.
Court heard on Aug. 9, Janvier was hanging out with friends at Lions Park. When he was leaving, he approached a woman – who had an emergency protection order against him – and asked her for a ride. When she said no, he punched the driver's side window.
Exactly one month earlier, the 25-year-old was picked up by police having passed out in front of an apartment building in St. Albert. At the time he was on probation for assault and was to abstain from alcohol.
The Crown sought a higher sentence, but acknowledged Janvier would be going into residential treatment for alcohol addiction in September.
Judge Bruce Garriock sentenced Janvier to a total of 45 days in jail. Given 1.5-to-one credit for time in custody prior to sentencing, he has 15 days left to serve. He will also have to pay a $200 fine.
Fine for rollover
Rolling his SUV has netted one St. Albert man a hefty fine and a ban from driving for at least three months.
David Robert Mudicka pleaded guilty to driving while over the legal blood alcohol limit in court on Monday.
On Aug. 3, RCMP were called to a single vehicle collision where a blue SUV travelling at a high rate of speed rolled onto its roof at an intersection in St. Albert. Police notes indicated Mudicka crawled out of the driver's window and was slurring his words when talking with officers.
Mudicka provided two breath samples reading 210 milligrams of alcohol in 100 millilitres of blood. The legal blood alcohol limit is 80 milligrams.
Mudicka only suffered minor injuries from the collision. He had no prior criminal record.
“I am truly remorseful for my actions. I lost complete judgment,” Mudicka said to the court.
Garriock handed down a $2,000 fine and a one-year driving prohibition. Mudicka can apply to the Interlock program after three months.
House arrest for “mid-level” dealer
One-year house arrest is the sentence one St. Albert man received after being caught with marijuana … twice.
Charles John Clissold pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance and two counts of failing to comply with an undertaking.
Pulled over by RCMP in January, officers found 97 grams of marijuana and $2,240 in cash in Clissold's car. He was released on conditions.
Clissold was pulled over by officers again in June. He was past his curfew. They found 44 grams of marijuana in six baggies in his possession.
A pre-sentence report was ordered for Clissold's sentencing. It indicated strong family support.
“It's most disturbing that you became involved again … hopefully that's a one-off,” said Garriock.
Clissold was given 12 months house arrest and must pay a $500 fine.
