A former mixed martial artist's partner in drug-related crime has been sentenced.
Priscilla Martha Marie Paquette will spend 112 days in jail for two counts of possessing for the purpose of trafficking from a pair of 2014 RCMP pullovers.
On November 21, her and Ryan Timothy Chiappe were found in possession of what police said was 10 grams of heroin, with an estimated street value of more than $4,000, when stopped in an alleyway off Carney Street.
Four days later, they were found possession of more than two ounces of methamphetamine and 3.5 grams of cocaine plus drug trafficking paraphernalia and a large sum of cash, according to RCMP, when they were stopped on Ogilvie Street.
In January 2017, Chiappe was sentenced to 30 days in jail for possession for the purpose of trafficking and to five days for possession of a controlled substance as a result of two pullovers.
Once known as Ryan "Ruthless" Chiappe, he carried a 10-8 record as a welterweight mixed martial arts fighter - some of his fights were held in Prince George - but had not had a bout since August 2013 according to websites devoted to the sport.
Born in Prince George but living in the Lower Mainland, he was next in the news when police issued a statement in December 2014 saying he was arrested in relation to the alleged theft of a puppy and possession of two stolen motorbikes. From that incident, he was sentenced in August 2015 to two years probation.
Paquette was also sentenced to 22 days in jail for three counts of trafficking in a controlled substance from three arrests in September 2014. In February 2017, Felisha Adele Marie Paquette was sentenced to three years probation on the counts.
Priscilla Paquette had been in custody for 105 days prior to sentencing. She was also issued a 10-year firearms prohibition and ordered to provide a DNA sample.
