In­ter­mit­tent cus­tody for im­paired driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm in Cold­brook

Annapolis Valley Register - - X NEWS -

A Prince Ed­ward Is­land man has been sen­tenced to in­ter­mit­tent cus­tody for oper­at­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while his abil­ity to do so was im­paired by al­co­hol or a drug, thereby caus­ing bod­ily harm to a woman in Cold­brook.

Kyle Steven Mackay, 22, of Ab­ney, pleaded guilty to the charge in De­cem­ber. In Fe­bru­ary, the court im­posed a twoyear, six-month driv­ing pro­hi­bi­tion against him in ad­di­tion to any time sen­tenced to cus­tody. Mackay will be el­i­gi­ble to ap­ply for the al­co­hol ig­ni­tion in­ter­lock de­vice pro­gram af­ter one year.

Mackay was present in Kentville pro­vin­cial court for the con­tin­u­a­tion of his sen­tenc­ing hear­ing on May 3. Judge Alan Tufts sen­tenced Mackay to three months of in­ter­mit­tent cus­tody, to be served at the Northeast Nova Sco­tia Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity near New Glas­gow.

Mackay’s in­ter­mit­tent sen­tence will be served from Fri­days at 9 p.m. to Mon­days at 5:30 a.m., which be­gan May 5, and con­tinue un­til the sen­tence is served. Mackay was sen­tenced to pro­ba­tion dur­ing his time serv­ing in­ter­mit­tent cus­tody and for one year af­ter the cus­to­dial sen­tence is com­pleted. The court fined Mackay $200 in vic­tim sur­charges. An ap­pli­ca­tion for a DNA or­der was not granted.

Mackay com­mit­ted the of­fence in Cold­brook on Sept. 17, 2016. Charges of oper­at­ing a mo­tor ve­hi­cle while his blood al­co­hol level ex­ceeded the le­gal limit, thereby caus­ing bod­ily harm, and dan­ger­ous driv­ing caus­ing bod­ily harm were with­drawn on May 3.
