Ayrheart gets 32 months
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.
