Man sen­tenced for evad­ing police

Moose Jaw Times Herald - - COMING UP -

A man charged with sev­eral weapons vi­o­la­tions, as well as flee­ing police, was sen­tenced on Mon­day. On Aug. 23, Zack­ery Mar­ck­oski, 23, was ar­rested af­ter run­ning from police at the 1100 block of Fourth Av­enue North­west. Pre­vi­ously, on Aug. 20, police had at­tempted to stop a ve­hi­cle on the 900 block of Athabasca Street East. A re­lease stated the driver fled at high speed, but police were able to iden­tify him as an adult Moose Jaw male who had sev­eral war­rants out for his ar­rest. Police lo­cated the same ve­hi­cle three days later and were able to get to it be­fore the male drove away. The sus­pect fled from police on foot. A sawed off .22 cal­i­bre firearm and am­mu­ni­tion was found in the ve­hi­cle. Mar­ck­oski pleaded guilty on Mon­day to one count, of evad­ing police and one count of driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied for the Aug. 20 in­ci­dent, along with un­safe stor­age of am­mu­ni­tion, pos­ses­sion of a firearm with­out a li­cence, and pos­ses­sion of am­mu­ni­tion while prohibited for the Aug. 23 al­ter­ca­tion. He also pleaded guilty to sev­eral breaches of re­cog­ni­zance and pro­ba­tion, as well as two counts of pos­ses­sion of mar­i­juana. Crown Pros­e­cu­tor Rob Parker told the Times-Her­ald that Mar­ck­oski has spent 142 days in re­mand, giv­ing him credit for about seven months time served. He was re­leased, but re­mains sub­ject to a one-year driv­ing pro­hi­bi­tion — con­sec­u­tive to any pro­hi­bi­tions he might be un­der al­ready — as well as a life pro­hi­bi­tion on hav­ing firearms. Mar­ck­oski was also be­fore the court for drug-re­lated charges, which were dealt with un­der the same sen­tence.
