Ayr­heart gets 32 months

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Ber­trand Gos­selin Sher­brooke Court­house

OnOc­to­ber 24th last year, Sean Ayr­heart had an ur­gent need for crack. Since he did not have the money to pur­chase his drugs, he went out and made an armed rob­bery at a con­ve­nience store in down­town Sher­brooke. Pre­tend­ing he was hid­ing a knife un­der his jacket, he threat­ened the em­ployee and asked for her cash. The drawer then con­tained about $100. With the well de­tailed de­scrip­tion that they had, the Sher­brooke po­lice of­fi­cers very shortly lo­cated him. Ayr­heart has been in cus­tody all this time, un­til last week, when he de­cided to plead guilty to the charge. His lawyer, Jean Cou­ture from Legal Aid, had a long dis­cus­sion with the Crown At­tor­ney, Andy Drouin, be­fore com­ing to a mu­tual sug­ges­tion. Over the years, the 34 year-old re­cidi­vist has been around the coun­try, com­mit­ting crimes wher­ever he has been. Back in May of 2006, he was sen­tenced to five months in jail for lar­ceny, ut­ter­ing threats and fail­ing to com­ply with court or­ders.

An­other event kept the court peo­ple busy last week: the ap­pear­ance of three Mon­treal women ac­cused of con­spir­acy to com­mit an armed rob­bery and for com­mit­ting the armed rob­bery. They are: Na­dine Pierre, Glo­ria Lopala and Daph­née Noza­lis. One week ago, on Wed­nes­day morn­ing, a peace­ful 60 year-old man had vis­i­tors at his home on Mul­vena Road, be­tween Rich­mond and Danville. For an un­known rea­son, the man was shot in the legs. For­tu­nately, his wounds were not that se­vere. The gang­sters, the three women, walked away with a good amount of money. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is far from be­ing over. In the mean­while, the trio of ladies are held in cus­tody and Legal Aid lawyer Jean Cou­ture will do his best to get them bailed out this week.
