Charlottetown man also pleads to 11 other criminal offences

Jason Yeo

A 30-year-old Charlottetown man already awaiting sentence on serious criminal charges pleaded guilty Wednesday in P.E.I. Supreme Court to possession of cocaine for the purposes of trafficking.

Jason Norman Yeo entered the guilty plea before Justice Wayne Cheverie.

Yeo was one of three parties named on that information.

Crown Counsel Scott Barry stayed two other drug-related charges laid against Yeo.

But the facts relating to one of those charges will be read into the court record when Yeo is sentenced April 7 on the charge he pleaded guilty to Wednesday.

Yeo also entered guilty pleas Wednesday to 11 other criminal charges.

Those charges included multiple counts of possession of prohibited weapons and multiple counts of breaching the conditions of an undertaking.

Yeo was already facing a lengthy sentence of incarceration after having been found guilty of robbery and trafficking in cocaine.

The robbery charge relates to an incident at the home of convicted drug dealer Dean Fairhurst in Emyvale in May of 2012. Yeo was convicted of helping to plan that robbery.

Yeo will be back in court March 31 for sentence on the robbery charge. The Crown is expected to seek a sentence of several years on that charge.

The other charge relates to the sale of cocaine to an undercover RCMP officer. Yeo was driving the vehicle in which that drug transaction took place.

Sentence will be handed down on the drug matters and other charges April 7.

Federal time is also expected on the drug matters.

    I don't think you're seeing the bigger picture here if your only advice is to become a better criminal. This guy is obviously a major step in reducing drug trafficking and crime given his history and influence over others. Hearing his name all the time and always getting caught means he is a repeat offender, not that he is dumb.

      actually, thank goodness they don't or they would still be out there doing the same thing instead of getting caught and put away. don't kid yourself, some of these people are very dangerous.
