Scales of justice
A 20-year-old Charlottetown man will be back in court in February for sentencing after pleading guilty to several charges Thursday, including possessing bear mace.
Jarred Scott Dingwell appeared before Chief Judge John Douglas in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to five charges that included possession of bear mace, possession of a stolen TV, uttering forged documents and fraud.
He is also awaiting sentencing for possession of the psychedelic drug psilocybin and carrying a concealed weapon after police found him with a pellet gun.
During Thursday’s proceedings, Dingwell’s lawyer requested a pre-sentence report and Douglas adjourned the case until Feb. 26.
In 2011 Dingwell’s brother Dylan shot and killed their brother Kyle outside their mother’s home in Charlottetown. Jarred was in the house when Kyle was shot and he testified at Dylan’s second-degree murder trial.
Dylan was found guilty of manslaughter and recently granted day parole.
