A 36-year-old man who as­saulted some­one who was in a parked ve­hi­cle in Souris was sen­tenced Thurs­day to 60 days in jail.

Les­lie Dou­glas Carter ap­peared be­fore Chief Judge Nancy Orr in pro­vin­cial court in Ge­orge­town where he pleaded guilty to as­sault caus­ing bod­ily harm.

The court heard that on April 30 some­one called the Kings District RCMP to re­port see­ing one man hit­ting an­other in the Is­land EMS park­ing lot in Souris.

Crown at­tor­ney Emily Camp­bell said the vic­tim told po­lice Carter ap­proached his ve­hi­cle and told him to stay away from some­one Camp­bell didn’t iden­tify in court.

Carter grabbed the vic­tim and hit him about a dozen times caus­ing in­juries to his eyes, Camp­bell said.

De­fence lawyer Bren­dan Hub­ley told the court Carter was re­morse­ful and re­gret­ted his ac­tions.

Along with the jail time, which Carter will serve on week­ends, he will be on pro­ba­tion for 18 months a nd must write an apol­ogy let­ter to the vic­tim.

Carter will have to pro­vide a DNA sam­ple for the na­tional data­bank and must pay a $100 vic­tim sur­charge.
