GEORGETOWN — A young man described as having a near “psychotic” reaction to alcohol and a criminal history of serious property damage has been sentenced to jail.
“He has a serious problem with alcohol and he should not drink,’’ said Crown prosecutor Lisa Goulden in provincial court here recently.
“It’s almost like he has a toxic reaction … almost psychotic.”
Judge Nancy Orr was hearing the submissions regarding the case of 19-year-old Morgan Daniel Dixon of Lower Montague, who was charged with a breach of probation.
Dixon has had a string of issues related to alcohol.
He has amassed more than $30,000 in restitution and damage fines.
On July 16, while under probation for keeping the peace and refraining from drinking, court was told Dixon became intoxicated and ended up at his father’s home with police in pursuit.
“He ran around the neighbourhood basically ranting as police tried to arrest him,’’ said Goulden. “He’s a significant risk to the public.”
He was sentenced to 10 days in jail and further probation, counselling and assistance.
