A P.E.I. man who breached a no-contact order three days after it was made was sentenced recently to 60 days in jail.

Ian Dana Ross, 57, appeared before Judge Jeff Lantz in provincial court in Charlottetown by video from jail where he has been in custody since his arrest.

Ross pleaded guilty to one count of breaching an undertaking.

Crown attorney Chad McQuaid told the court that on May 5, Ross was placed on an undertaking, which included a condition he not have any contact with the victim.

The court heard that on May 8, the victim called the police to report Ross went to her home.

McQuaid said the victim reported that Ross told her to walk to the P.E.I. Brewing Company to get some liquor and that she only had five minutes to do it.

The police arrested him several days later.

In his submissions, McQuaid said Ross had a history of breaching no-contact orders with the same woman, and she is fearful of him.

Defence lawyer Alex Dalton told the court Ross has underlying mental health and addiction issues.

Along with the jail time, Ross will be on probation after his release, which included a condition he have no contact with the victim unless his probation officer consents.
