Riot at the Tal­bot jail

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE -

Back in April, at Sher­brooke’s Tal­bot de­ten­tion cen­ter, an in­mate iden­ti­fied as Justin Ryan be­gan show­ing his dis­sat­is­fac­tion to­wards his con­di­tions as a pris­oner. He started a fire in his cell and broke a sur­veil­lance cam­era. His be­hav­iour had a neg­a­tive ef­fect on a few other in­mates who joined the 27 year-old pris­oner in his protest ac­tions. The 26 year-old Pierre Lavoie broke his hand­cuffs while be­ing trans­ported to the Court­house and there were also threats di­rected to the prison guards. Also, while the five in­mates were be­ing trans­ferred to a Mon­treal prison, they got to­gether and tried to desta­bi­lize the ve­hi­cle by rock­ing it from one side to the other. The truck driver had a hard time to keep it on the road and had to call for help. They also caused dam­age in­side the truck.

Last week, three of the in­mates, Pierre Yves Lavoie, 26, Al­fred Gagné, 25, and Maxime Roche­leau, 23, ad­mit­ted to the bad be­hav­iour. They were re­spec­tively sen­tenced to 3, 4 and 2 months, added to the sen­tences they were serv­ing pre­vi­ously. Justin Ryan, who has seven charges against him, will be back in court on May 31st and Steve Soudin, 34, who has four charges against him, will be back be­fore a Judge on July 20th.
