H.P. court docket
Aug. 21, 2017
Judge D.R. Shynkar
A 39-year-old Faust man has extended his time in jail by almost two weeks for an assault and a breach.
Myron Stephen Bowles was sentenced to 45 days in jail for assault with a weapon and for a failing to comply with a court order when he appeared in High Prairie provincial court Aug. 21.
Credited for 33 days served, he will serve the balance of the sentence in the Edmonton Remand Centre.
Bowles assaulted a female at a residence on Aug. 1 between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., Crown prosecutor Haydn Shook says.
“He punched her, spit on her and hit her with a board on an unknown part of the body,” says Shook, who notes no injuries were reported.
“He was out past his curfew at the time.”
Both were “acquaintances”, lawyer Harry Jong says.
“He says he was intoxicated at the time and doesn’t remember anything about the incident.”
“They had an argument and something happened.”
Viola S. Grey, 26, of Atikameg, was handed a global sentence of 30 days, with five days credit for time served, for assault, mischief and damage under $5,000, breach of conditions, and two counts of failing to comply with conditions.
She was at a residence July 14 when the occupant asked her to leave, the Crown says.
After leaving, she returned.
“She struck a female in the jaw with a closed fist,” Shook says.
When she was apprehended by police, Grey kicked a divider between the back and front seats of the police vehicle and broke an interior light.
She was on court order to not be at the residence or to have any contact with the victim.
Grey was also intoxicated against court order on Aug. 19 and in contact with the same person.
“She says the majority of her record is related to alcohol and she wants to take treatment,” lawyer Jong says.
That pleased the judge.
“She wants to go for treatment and I think that’s a good idea,” Shynkar says.
After she is released from jail, Grey will be on probation for nine months as the judge ordered her to complete treatment for alcohol.
Rex Joseph Willier, 58, was fined $1,000, plus a surcharge of $300, for being in care and control of a vehicle while being intoxicated.
Faust RCMP received a report of a vehicle parked by a seniors’ housing complex with a person behind the steering wheel either sleeping or passed out, the Crown says.
His breath samples recorded 130 milligrams when he was tested at the police station.
“He is taking responsibility by an early guilty plea,” the Crown says.
Duty counsel Jong says Willier told him that he had been drinking alcohol and was on his way home and decided to stop and park when the alcohol was making him drowsy.
Willier was also suspended from driving for one year.
Clayton Collin Badger, 42, was fined $287 for trespassing on premises and $115 for unlawful consumption of alcohol.
Badger was in the premises of Smitty’s restaurant and Brandy McCoy’s where he is prohibited.
“He says he was intoxicated and playing pool,” Jong says.
Badger had also been drinking in a public park for the other charge.
John Charles Cardinal was fined $345 for driving while unauthorized.
