An In­n­is­fil-area man charged in two rob­beries this spring, and do­mes­tic as­saults over a six-month pe­riod in late 2017 and early 2018, has been given a four-year pen­i­ten­tiary sen­tence.

Isaac Cooper, 35, who pleaded guilty to two rob­bery and two as­sault charges in the On­tario Court of Jus­tice in Sud­bury, was also is­sued a life­time weapons ban and a DNA or­der.

The Crown and de­fence lawyer Wil­liam Beech had sug­gested the sen­tence.

Cooper was orig­i­nally sched­uled to en­ter guilty pleas on Sept. 28, but vic­tim im­pact state­ments were not ready.

The most se­ri­ous of the charges Cooper was fac­ing con­cerned the rob­bing and bit­ing of a cab driver on Lorne Street on May 1. The driver was taken to Health Sciences North as a pre­cau­tion.

Cooper was charged with rob­bery, as­sault with a weapon, as­sault caus­ing bod­ily harm, and two counts of breach of bail.

Cooper also robbed a PetroCanada sta­tion in the city on March 5. He was charged with rob­bery and dis­guise with in­tent.

The four al­leged do­mes­tic as­saults that dated back to Sept. 1, 2017, pro­duced three charges of as­sault, and each of one threat­en­ing death/bod­ily harm and chok­ing.
