‘Bel­liger­ent, unco-op­er­a­tive’ woman sent to jail

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - NEWS -

A 44-year-old Char­lot­te­town woman was sen­tenced in provin­cial court to serve 10 days in jail for re­fus­ing to pro­vide a sam­ple of her breath for a breath­a­lyzer test.

Krista Lynn Gorm­ley was also fined $1,200 and or­dered to pay a vic­tims of crime sur­charge of $360.

Gorm­ley was charged fol­low­ing a sin­gle-ve­hi­cle accident in Oc­to­ber in which her ve­hi­cle struck a pole and left the road.

Her ve­hi­cle sus­tained ex­ten­sive dam­age.

The court was told that Gorm­ley had been unco-op­er­a­tive with po­lice and was bel­liger­ent to­wards them.

At one point she made a fist and ges­tured to­wards the face of one of the of­fi­cers.

Chief Provin­cial Court Judge Nancy Orr noted that Gorm­ley had no prior record but ex­pressed con­cern over her con­duct to­wards po­lice at the time of her ar­rest.

Orr said the job po­lice have to do is dif­fi­cult enough with­out hav­ing to deal with peo­ple who con­duct them­selves the way Gorm­ley did on this oc­ca­sion.
