Correctional Service of Canada asked that Adam Troy Gaudet be given extended leave privileges

A Deblois man who was recently granted day parole will have the conditions of that release altered so he can work as a crab fisherman this season.

A Deblois man who was recently granted day parole will have the conditions of that release altered so he can work as a crab fisherman this season.

Adam Troy Gaudet was sentenced in October to two years and three months in prison after pleading guilty to conspiracy to traffic in hydromorphone and possession of hydromorphone for the purpose of trafficking.

In a decision issued last month, the Parole Board of Canada granted him day parole to be followed by full parole.

Gaudet hasn't transitioned to full parole and the latest report from April 28 said the Correctional Service of Canada asked that he be given extended leave privileges of no longer than 28 days so he could fish in his home area.

The extended leave privileges will see Gaudet go out to sea with a family member and stay there until they catch their quota.

In its report, the parole board said it concluded the leave wouldn't present an undue risk to society and would facilitate Gaudet's reintegration as a law-abiding citizen.

Gaudet will get the extended leave privileges from the start of the crab fishing season until he and his family member catch their quota or at the end of 28 consecutive days, whichever comes first.

    I think it's sad that convicted criminals can serve partial or conditional sentences and keep their jobs; when there are so many law abiding citizens who are out of work and looking. It's kind of sad to me that there are so many law abiding citizens unemployed/looking for work and the people in jail get special sentences so they can keep their jobs.
