Montague man jailed
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.
