SUMMERSIDE — A 19-year-old city man who failed to report to his probation officer and, later, failed to show up in court, was sentenced Thursday morning to nine days behind bars.

Prince County Courthouse.

Brody Jeremy MacDonald pleaded guilty to the charges.

He had been placed on probation in July. Despite several attempts by his probation to set up appointments, MacDonald failed to respond and didn’t show up for scheduled appointments.

He was charged with breach of probation and was scheduled to appear in court. As a result, a warrant was issued and he was later jailed, spending the night behind bars.

The only previous conviction on his record was in July.

Judge Jeff Lantz, in handing down the nine-day sentence, said that reporting to a probation officer is one of the easiest terms to follow in a probation order.

Once his sentence is served, MacDonald will be on probation for 12 months.

    Wow, nine whole days and probably on weekends. Careful Judge you would not want a lawsuit for making this individual accountably for his actions. That is a no no on PEI. Look at our Government as evidence of that.
