Cape Breton Post - - Cape Breton -

SYD­NEY — Wildlife Act charges against two Mem­ber­tou men have been re­ferred to the restora­tive jus­tice pro­gram.

Cary Paul, 30, and Craig Justin Christ­mas, 40, are both charged with care­less use of a firearm, hunt­ing with a light and dis­charg­ing a firearm too close to a res­i­dence. Both are also charged with a sin­gle count of fail­ing to at­tend court.

The of­fences are al­leged to have oc­curred last Oct. 27 in Christ­mas Is­land.

The restora­tive jus­tice pro­gram is an al­ter­na­tive to the reg­u­lar jus­tice process. It is de­signed to still hold the of­fender ac­count­able for their ac­tions as part of the pro­gram brings all sides to­gether to dis­cuss what oc­curred and how it can be pre­vented from hap­pen­ing in the fu­ture.

A sta­tus up­date on their progress in the pro­gram is now set for July 10.
