Valley Journal Advertiser - - NEWS -

A Kentville man will serve in­ter­mit­tent cus­tody for steal­ing over $15,000 from the Kentville Ma­sonic As­so­ci­a­tion.

Daniel Gor­don Parks, 60, changed his plea to guilty in Oc­to­ber to a charge of steal­ing prop­erty of a value ex­ceed­ing $5,000 from the Kentville Ma­sonic As­so­ci­a­tion. The mat­ter was ad­journed to al­low time for a pre-sen­tence re­port to be pre­pared and for sen­tenc­ing.

On Feb. 28, Judge Alan Tufts sen­tenced Parks to 90 days of in­ter­mit­tent cus­tody, to be served from Satur­days at 9 a.m. to Mon­days at 6 a.m., be­gin­ning March 3.

Parks will be on pro­ba­tion while not serv­ing his in­ter­mit­tent sen­tence and for 18 months fol­low­ing. His pro­ba­tion or­der in­cludes resti­tu­tion of $3,600 paid at the rate of $200 per month be­gin­ning once the in­ter­mit­tent sen­tence is served. Parks was also fined $200 in vic­tim sur­charges.

The court also granted a stand­alone resti­tu­tion or­der for $15,811.05 to the ben­e­fit of the Kentville Ma­sonic As­so­ci­a­tion.

Parks com­mit­ted the of­fence in Kentville be­tween July 12, 2015, and Dec. 6, 2016.
