Evan Dacey Alook, 21, of Atikameg, was sentenced to five days in jail, with credit for time served, after pleading guilty to breaching conditions.
He was living in Atikameg when he was ordered to reside in Edmonton, Crown prosecutor Hadyn Shook said.
“He was living on the streets in Edmonton and somebody brought him back to Atikameg,” duty counsel Harry Jong said.
It prompted a humourous response fro the judge.
“Now he’s got to get a ride back to Edmonton,” Judge Watson said.
