Man pleads guilty to thefts and DUI

Jesse Wallner fined $1,300, loses licence for 12 months for refusing to provide a breath sample; gets 12-month conditional sentence for stealing

Clarion Staff

Jesse Wallner has been sentenced for crimes including theft and driving under the influence of alcohol in Kindersley provincial court on May 15. He received a range of penalties.

The accused pleaded guilty to a breath sample demand refusal and to two counts of theft under $5,000. John Knox, the Crown prosecutor, said he was proceeding as a first offence to refusing a breath demand, a charge that carries the same penalties as an impaired driving conviction.

Knox said he could ask for a jail sentence due to Wallner’s criminal history and the range of charges before the court, but he was giving him a break. He noted that circumstances from both cases are straight forward.
