April 27, 2022
Judge G.W. Paul
At trial, Gordon Conrad Greyeyes changed his plea to guilty to seven crimes and one traffic ticket. The Crown prosecutor withdrew other charges and tickets.
Greyeyes did not attend court on March 13, 2019, November 20, 2019, and September 30, 2020.
On September 10, 2019, an RCMP officer saw a silver car driving in Slave Lake, said the Crown. The license plate did not match the vehicle.
The vehicle parked in the McDonald’s parking lot. The driver started to get out of the vehicle. The officer recognized Greyeyes from an interaction the week before in Westlock. Greyeyes was prohibited from driving. He was arrested for driving while prohibited.
On January 11, 2020 around 8:42 p.m., an RCMP officer went to the Slave Lake Walmart, said the Crown. He’d been told that Greyeyes was in the area. The officer spotted Greyeye’s green Nissan driving in the area. Greyeyes was prohibited from driving until March 3, 2021. The officer pulled the vehicle over. Greyeyes was driving. Upon his arrest, Greyeyes asked to bring his backpack with him. Police found someone else’s treaty card with Greyeye’s picture attached. Greyeyes admitted trying to alter the ID, by putting his picture on it. The vehicle was not insured.
Greyeyes pleaded guilty to driving while prohibited, forging a document, and a traffic ticket for driving without insurance.
Greyeyes was on release conditions which included a requirement to report to probation. He didn’t report on September 11, 2020.
The sentencing hearing started, but will be adjourned until October 5, 2022. This is so a Gladue Report can be written.
A woman entered into a six-month peace bond. The Crown withdrew a charge of uttering threats to cause bodily harm or death.
During the peace bond, the woman must keep the peace and have no contact with the complainant.
