Allan Javorski has been convicted of mischief-property damage.
Javorski appeared in court via CCTC from the Edmonton Remand Centre. He has been there since Nov. 13. He plead guilty. The charges stemmed from an incident where Javorski punched a wall out of frustration, causing the wall to crack.
The crown recommended a custodial sentence citing Javorski’s criminal record, which includes theft, assault and jail time. Defense council agreed that the record is not good but stated Javorski regrets the incident and was inclined to fix the damage he caused.
Judge Paul gave credit to Javorski for pleading guilty but felt the recommendation from the crown was reasonable. He sentenced Javorski to 20 days in prison with a credit for three days. There would be a victim surcharge fee of $100 with no time to pay.
