Slave Lake Provincial Court
October 31, 2018
Judge G.W. Paul presiding
It was a light docket last week, with several cases needing more preparation time before they could proceed and the usual handful of no-shows for whom warrants were issued.
Appearing in court via closed circuit from Peace River Correctional was Skylar Wade Bigstone, who pled guilty to a breach of condition of his release from custody. On October 26, 2018 an officer from the local RCMP detachment observed an individual who was thought to be Bigstone out riding a bike at 2:44 a.m., in violation of a curfew condition imposed by the court. Upon contact, it was determined that it was indeed Bigstone and he was taken into custody.
According to Bigstone, who has recently turned 18, he has been getting an education at the Outreach, and he had been “…handing out resumes” when he was taken into custody.
Judge Paul sentenced him to time served, which was figured out at 10 days, and a $100 victim surcharge.
“I reject the notion that you were handing out resumes at 2:44 in the morning,” Judge Paul told him. “You have now a total of eight breaches of conditions on your record. You served 10 days the last time as well. If you break your promise to this court again you will be serving considerably more than 10 days.”
