Man owns up to mistake

H.P. court docket
Jan. 9, 2023
Judge S.P. Hinkley

An Atikameg man found himself behind bars for several days after breaching a sentence he was allowed to serve in his home.
Evan Blake Noskey, 33, was sentenced to 10 days in jail after he pleaded guilty in High Prairie provincial court Jan. 9 to breaching a conditional sentence order (CSO).
Court heard the charge arose when Noskey was banned from consuming alcohol and illicit drugs for six-months after pleading guilty to aggravated assault, Crown prosecutor Adriene Shapka told court.
However, Noskey was drinking alcohol with a friend and was not at home when police made a check at the residence on Dec. 5. He was arrested at the same residence on Dec. 6.
After he serves 10 days in jail, Noskey will continue the regular CSO at a specified residence at Atikameg. During the first 90 days of the CSO, he must reside in the residence 24 hours a days seven days a week.
Noskey had four months left on the CSO, court was told.
Judge S.P. Hinkley gave Noskey credit for pleading guilty.
“You’re here, you owned it,” he said.
Court heard Noskey was mourning the death of a relative and was urged by a friend to have a drink of alcohol, duty counsel Harry Jong told court.

Judge S.P. Hinkley ordered Desjarlais to pay the fine by July 10.
