Nuttall sentenced to custody
AMHERST – Two Parrsboro-area men were sentenced last week in Supreme Court following guilty pleas to charges relating to an incident involving firearms almost a year ago.
Joshua Robinson Nuttall, 25, was sentenced to 90 days custody for each count of possessing a shotgun dangerous to the public peace and pointing a firearm at someone during the commission of an offence.
His two custodial sentences run concurrently to the other, and he can serve the sentences intermittently. Beginning Jan. 7, he’s to report to the correctional facility to serve his sentence from 8 p.m. Fridays to 6 a.m. Mondays.
When not in custody and for 30 months following the expiration of the custodial term, Nuttall will abide by a probation order.
He was given a $100 victim fine surcharge for each count, both payable by Feb. 28, 2011.
Nuttall’s co-accused, Nicholas Owen Phinney, had his sentence suspended for pleading guilty to one count each of possession of a shotgun dangerous to the public, uttering a threat to cause bodily harm and uttering a threat to burn or damage property.
He was given a 30-month probationary sentence for each count, each concurrent, with reporting and conditions.
He was also given a $100 victim fine surcharge for each of the three charges, payable by June 30, 2011.
