Judge issues warning to man charged with harassing calls

“I don’t want to be the guy who sends you to jail, but I will,” warned Judge G. Yake to a man he urged to co-operate with officials

“I don’t want to be the guy who sends you to jail, but I will,” warned Judge G. Yake to a man he urged to co-operate with officials attempting to complete his pre-sentence report.

Judge Yake told John Alan Andrews, who appeared in Stettler provincial court last Thursday, the report would help determine an appropriate sentence for him when he returns to court Feb. 13 for charges of making harassing phone calls.

Speaking on his own behalf, Andrews said he has tried to go it on his own, but realizes he needs help and vowed he would now co-operate.
