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.

    Why is it necessary to always state that Jarod is the younger brother of Dylan and Kyle? The cases are not related. My heart goes out to Mrs. Dingwell. May she find the strength she needs to cope with the tragedy in her boys' lives.

      Why bring up what happened with his brothers?!?! One case does not have anything to do with the other.... Dumb.

    Last March, on Holy Thursday, Pope Francis washed the feet of a dozen inmates at a juvenile detention centre. The rite re-enacts Jesus’ washing of the feet of his disciples. Hey, I'm just sayin' . . .

    My heart goes out to his mother who has been through so much. It is so hard to watch helplessly as your child self-destructs with drug addiction. She's had this happen with three children. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for one sibling to follow another into this lifestyle. I could not imagine how she copes with it. I hope she has a great support system and that her two sons will get the help that they need to get on the right track and stay there. God bless you Mrs. Dingwell.
