Drinking and drugs lead to probation in Stettler court

A young Donalda man was placed on probation for six months in connection with an assault of a campground manager at Rochon Sands Campground last June.

Jessie Standage, 19, was placed on probation for the incident on June 25, which involved drinking at a noisy party at 11:55 p.m. while the park demands quite time after 11 p.m.

“I have some sympathy for the caretaker – he was just doing his job,” said Judge W. A. Andreasen.

As the caretaker approached the group, he was surrounded by the party-goers and while the caretaker was pinned to the ground on his stomach, Standage jumped on the victim’s back and struck him in the back of the head several times, although he sustained no serious injuries, the Crown Prosecutor explained.

Through the term of his probation, Standage was ordered to abstain from alcohol and take counseling or treatment as required by the probation officer.

Charges of assault will be withdrawn if Standage complies with probation for the full term.

Ivan S. Holubetz, 34, was placed on probation for 12 months after pleading guilty for theft under $5,000 after stealing a colour television set and Nintendo Wii from his parents’ home on July 10 and selling the property to buy drugs.

“It looks like something has a hold on you to act shamefully against your family,” said Judge Andreasen.

“Hopefully a court order to abstain from illegal drugs will assist you.”

The Crown Prosecutor said the parents of Holubetz report that their son is improving with his addiction.

Charges will be dropped if he completes probation with also includes counseling and treatment direction by the probation officer.

Peter Jackie Hughes was fined $230 for driving an automobile without a valid driver’s license.

Upon pleading guilty Peggy Sue Rebalkin was fined a minimum $1,000 for driving a vehicle with an alcohol content exceeding .08 milligrams.

Her lowest reading was 110 mg and she had no previous criminal record.

She was also suspended from driving for one year.

“If you drive during that period, it is a criminal offence and you will likely go to jail,” said Judge Andreasen.
