An example was made out of a man in Provincial Court for breaching his conditional sentence.

Brent Wade Studer was serving a sentence for the break and enter of a rural farm shed.

He had 91 days remaining on his six-month conditional sentence.

Studer was found by police at a licenced drinking establishment, and was under conditions not to consume alcohol.

“It erodes the public’s trust in conditional sentences,” said Steve Kritzer, Crown prosecutor.

Studer’s criminal record included weapons charges in 2003, and other convictions in 2004.

He was sentenced to an additional 45 days incarceration for the conditional sentence breach.

The court heard that he had significant health problems that required medication, which would be made available to him while serving jail time.

“As Mr. Kritzer pointed out it’s a blatant disregard of a court order,” said Judge Les Matsella during sentencing. “You have to obey the rules just like everybody else.”
