Mon­tague man jailed

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - THE ISLAND -

A Mon­tague man who keeps driv­ing when he’s not sup­posed to was sen­tenced Mon­day to 75 days in jail.

Ni­cholas Alexan­der John­ston, 30, ap­peared be­fore Chief Judge Nancy Orr in pro­vin­cial court in Char­lot­te­town for sen­tenc­ing after pre­vi­ously plead­ing guilty to driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied and breach­ing his pro­ba­tion.

The court heard that on May 12 a po­lice of­fi­cer in an un­marked car in Mon­tague saw John­ston driv­ing de­spite a court or­der pro­hibit­ing him from do­ing so.

John­ston also had prior con­vic­tions un­der the High­way Traf­fic Act that in­cluded driv­ing while his li­cence was sus­pended.

Orr sen­tenced John­ston to 60 days in jail for driv­ing while dis­qual­i­fied and 15 days to be served con­sec­u­tively for breach­ing his pro­ba­tion. John­ston is pro­hib­ited from driv­ing for two years and must pay $200 in vic­tim sur­charges.
