St. Brides man gets jail time

The Compass - - NEWS -

A St. Brides man has been sen­tenced to 30 days of jail for a num­ber of charges.

Eu­gene Fran­cis Fo­ley, 45, was sen­tenced at provin­cial court in Har­bour Grace on April 4.

Jail time was just the tip of Fo­ley’s sen­tences. He also re­ceived eight months house ar­rest, two years’ pro­ba­tion, two years driv­ing pro­hi­bi­tion and a three-year firearms pro­hi­bi­tion af­ter Fo­ley pleaded guilty to four of­fences stem­ming from an in­ci­dent last year.

Fo­ley en­tered guilty pleas to dan­ger­ous oper­a­tion of a mo­tor ve­hi­cle, re­fus­ing to blow the breath­a­lyzer, ini­ti­at­ing a po­lice pur­suit and as­sault with a weapon.

On June 23, 2013 mem­bers of the Pla­cen­tia RCMP with as­sis­tance from the Whit­bourne de­tach­ment at­tempted to stop Fo­ley when they sus­pected he was im­paired while op­er­at­ing his ve­hi­cle in the com­mu­nity.
