Judge D.R. Shynkar

An Atikameg woman will pay the price after giving authorities a phoney name.
Geralyn Laboucan, 28, was fined $400, plus a $120 victim fine surcharge, after pleading guilty to obstructing a police officer when she appeared in High Prairie provincial court.
Court heard when Laboucan was stopped by High Prairie RCMP, she identified herself by another name, Crown prosecutor Petter Hurich said.
However, the officer recognized Laboucan from a previous encounter.
To make matters worse, Laboucan was also on two outstanding warrants.
It was not the first time Laboucan had given a false name to police. Her criminal record showed a previous incident of false identity.
“She says she spent 36 hours in jail,” duty counsel Harry Jong said.
