A young High Prairie woman will serve another seven weeks behind bars after pleading guilty to various charges of thefts and breaching court orders
Shanelle Mary Rosychuk, 20, was handed a global sentence of 86 days when she appeared in High Prairie provincial court Sept. 16.
She was given credit for time served as she appeared from the Edmonton Remand Centre on CCTV.
In addition to her jail time, Rosychuk was also fined $2,875 for driving a vehicle with no insurance and $500 for possession of a controlled substance.
However, she will not have to pay the fines. Judge D.R. Shynkar noted the fines will be covered as part of her time in custody.
Court heard Rosychuk was in possession of 0.8 grams each of cocaine and ecstasy and 0.7 grams of meth when she was stopped by High Prairie RCMP near the Circle K store on July 12 around 3 a.m., Crown prosecutor Terrance Hudson said.
Rosychuk was also sentenced for one count each of possession of stolen property over $5,000 and under $5,000, two counts of breaching conditions and one count of possessing identity documents.
Rosychuk was in a vehicle stopped in downtown Grande Prairie by local police on March 10 around 12:10 a.m., Hudson told court. She was a passenger in a stolen vehicle where stolen identity documents a credit cards and mail were also found.
Rosychuk was also not permitted inside a vehicle without the owner’s permission. As such, she violated her court order.
It was not the end of her legal troubles. She was also sentenced for breaching conditions and failing to appear in court in Valleyview.
Rosychuk was stopped in a vehicle by Valleyview RCMP. She was on outstanding warrants, inside a vehicle without the owner’s permission, and open liquor.
“She knew she was breaching conditions,” Hudson said.
Court heard Rosychuk is on the road to recovery.
“The plan is, after she is released from jail, she will take a treatment program,” Judge Shynkar noted.
Rosychuk is eager to get back into a crime-free life.
“She says she has a problem with meth,” said her lawyer, Harry Jong.
“She wants to go into a treatment program on her own.”
The young woman also says she is being influence by the wrong people.
“She says she’s been tired of the people she’s hanging around with,” Jong said.
