Court Report

No criminal convictions, just traffic tickets and a peace bond

Slave Lake
Provincial Court
June 30, 2021
Judge G.W. Paul
presiding

A woman entered into a six-month peace bond. The Crown prosecutor withdrew a criminal charge.
The conditions of the peace bond were to keep the peace with a man who had the same last name, to report to probation, to take assessment, counselling, or treatment as directed, and to provide proof of completion.


Trent M. Bahm pleaded guilty to a log book violation.
On February 22, Bahm was at the Slave Lake scale, said the federal Crown. His log book was missing February 8 to 20. Bahm told the peace officer that he’d been working for a different company and had filled out a log book electronically. However, the officer was not able to find the company or the elog.
Bahm has three previous log book violation convictions, said the Crown. These were from 2014, 2016, and 2019.
Bahm was fined $1,500. He received time to pay until September 8, 2021.


Toni B. Cunningham’s lawyer entered guilty pleas to three traffic tickets on her behalf. Two were driving without insurance and the other was failure to hold a valid drivers licence.
Cunningham has previous ticket convictions for failure to hold a valid drivers licence, so the joint submission is for an extra $100 above the normal fine of $300, said the Crown prosecutor.
“If she ignores it, warrants will issue,” said Judge Paul. Also, if she is picked up a third time for driving without insurance the mandatory fine is over $5,000.
Cunningham was fined $6,150. This was two fines of $2,875 and one of $400. The larger fines were for driving without insurance. If she doesn’t pay these fines, she could have to spend up to 90 days in prison (45 days each for driving without insurance).
Cunningham received time to pay until August 3, 2022 for the two no insurance tickets. For the $400 fine, she received time to pay until December 7, 2021.


Daniel Arthur Belanger pleaded guilty to a traffic ticket for driving without insurance. He was fined $2,875 and given time to pay until August 3, 2022


Laurel D. Laboucan pleaded guilty to a traffic ticket for being the registered owner of an uninsured motor vehicle. She was fined $2,875 and given time to pay until August 5, 2022.


Guillermo W. Peters pleaded guilty to a speeding ticket. The Crown agreed to a reduced fine of $110.


Cory R. Courtorielle pleaded guilty to a traffic ticket for allowing a suspended driver to drive.
Judge Paul asked about the specified fine because it was an unusual ticket.
Courtorielle was fined $400. There are eight days default jail time if he doesn’t pay. He received time to pay until January 5, 2022.
