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.For more on this story, please see the May 23 print edition of The Clarion.
