A male teen is serving time after threatening a worker at the High Prairie Youth Assessment Centre.
The 14-year-old teen, who cannot be named under the Canadian Youth Justice Act, was sentenced to a total of 45 days in High Prairie youth court Jan. 27 for uttering threats to cause death.
Judge C.K.W. Thietke sentenced the youth to 30 days in jail followed by 15 days in the community.
The youth threatened a youth worker on Jan. 5, 2020, Crown prosecutor Terrance Hudson sais.
“I’m going to put you on the floor and make you bleed,” Hudson quoted the statement in the police report.
The incident started after the youth refused to put away chairs as requested by the worker, the Crown alleged.
“He’s made threats before,” the worker said in the police report read by the Crown.
Lawyer Harry Jong says the youth became angry with the youth worker because he wasn’t feeling good and wanted to be left alone.
The youth appeared from the Edmonton Young Offenders Centre on CCTV.
