Man pleads guilty to range of charges

Stephen Woolstencroft pleads guilty to committing common assault, uttering threats, possessing a controlled substance and failing to attend court

Stephen Woolstencroft has pleaded guilty to a range of charges and he was in Kindersley provincial court on May 15 to be sentenced on his different convictions.

John Knox, the Crown prosecutor, said he had worked out a joint resolution with Woolstencroft to present to the court. The accused faced a long list of charges, but he agreed to plead guilty to committing common assault, uttering threats, possessing a controlled substance and failing to attend court.

The prosecutor had the accused admit to his criminal record. He said the offences are dated, but there is violence on the man’s record. He provided the facts to the court and said the charges stem from two domestic situations.

Knox said the victim and accused were arguing when Woolstencroft threw a bullet at the victim’s head. He told her next time the bullet would go through her head, leading to an uttering threats charge. The accused struck the victim at another time when they were arguing in a car leading to the assault charge.
