Traffic and bylaw violators face fines in court

Several people were fined in Stettler Provincial Court on Oct. 14 for various traffic and bylaw infractions.

Cody Timmins of Erskine was fined $2,500 for driving a motor vehicle without insurance after pleading guilty.

Wade John Shepherd, 35, was fined $1,500 for driving with a blood-alcohol content over .08 milligrams, with a low reading of 230 mg. near Mirror on July 9 after he pleaded guilty.

Tyler Preston Jeglum was fined $800 to driving while suspended and $100 for failing to appear in court after he pleaded guilty.

“Driving while suspended is a very serious matter and could land a sentence of 30 days in jail,” said Judge Jim Mitchell.

Just 17 days earlier, Jeglum was fined $500 for driving while suspended.

Becky Heemskerk of Stettler was fined a total of $880 for four counts of violating the Town of Stettler dog bylaw.

Pleading guilty, she was fined $500 for a dog biting a person or animal, $200 for dog chasing a person or animal, $100 for having more than two dogs on residential premises and $80 for a dog running at large.

Incidentally, she was caring for a friend’s pit bull when it fled the property and bit a dog as it was walking with its owner along a pathway.

“When you agree to take an animal in your care, you are responsible,” said Judge Mitchell.

He further reminded dog owners that people walking along public trails do not want to be disrupted or attacked by aggressive dogs.

Christopher Standage, 19, was given a six-month discharge after pleading guilty to assault for an incident at Rochon Sands Campground in June when he pushed the campground manager against a vehicle after the manager arrived to request the party to quiet down.

“This will never happen again,” said Standage.

The judge advised the accused that this activity is not welcome at a campground where families and other people come to rest and relax.

“They don’t need rowdiness and drunkenness,” said Judge Mitchell.

Hol Dominic Garang of Edmonton was fined $150 for two counts of failing to appear in court as he pleaded guilty.

Michael Robin Wiebe of Bashaw was fined $100 for violating the noise bylaw by pounding on the walls of his home.
