Man gets 30 days for being in Wabasca
June 9, 2021
Judge G.W. Paul
Kashtin A. Young was in custody in Wabasca-Desmarais RCMP cells. He did not appear, but duty council entered three guilty pleas on his behalf for failure to comply with release conditions.
On June 5, 2021, Desmarais RCMP received a complaint of erratic driving, said the Crown prosecutor. Someone was speeding and weaving along a road in Wabasca. When the officer arrived, they saw a green mini van abandoned on the side of the road. The driver got out of the vehicle and ran down a driveway. The witness said that the driver hit a barricade before running off. The officer found Young down the driveway near the abandoned minivan.
Young was under conditions to be in a St. Albert residence 24/7, to not be in Wabasca-Desmarais, and to not have alcohol or drugs.
Young has “a growing record,” said duty council. The guilty plea is very early. He’s been in custody since his arrest.
Young was sentenced to 30 days concurrent for all crimes. With credit of 1.5 to one day presentence custody, he had eight days credit. Therefore, he had 22 days left to serve.
“Mr. Young is going to run out of chances,” said Judge Paul. This is a slight increase from the last conviction for similar crimes, which was 20 days.
