scales-of-justice

A man found in possession of a loaded shotgun was sentenced Wednesday to a further 90 days in jail.

Nathan Carl Alexander was also sentenced to 18 months probation, issued a lifetime firearms prohibition and ordered to attend counselling for addictions and trauma on a full-time basis for the January 20 incident.

Called to a report of a man pointing a gun, police converged on the area surrounding the 2600 block of Hollandia Drive and arrested Alexander in what was described as a high-risk takedown after he was found in a vehicle with a loaded shotgun.

The sentence came in the form of a joint submission between Crown and defence counsels after it was decided the story behind the allegation that he had pointed the gun "didn't add up," the court was told.

As a consequence, Alexander was sentenced on counts of possessing a firearm contrary to an order and knowingly occupying a vehicle in which there is a firearm as well as for obstructing a peace officer by refusing to provide his name.

In all, Alexander, who has remained in custody since the arrest, was sentenced to one year in jail but received credit of 275 days for time served prior to sentencing.
