SUMMERSIDE — A 21-year-old city woman will spend 60 days behind bars after pleading guilty in Summerside provincial court Monday to breaching probation, uttering threats and failing to attend court.
Brittany Samantha Gill was brought into the courtroom, legs shackled and hands cuffed, behind bars since her arrest on July 25.
Gill breached her probation by failing to comply with a condition to undergo assessment, counselling and treatment for drug addition. It was hours after leaving treatment on June 9 that Gill went to a former boyfriend’s house, demanded entry into his home and threatened to use a gun.
She was chartered and cautioned at the scene and given a date to appear in court. Gill failed to show for that court appearance, resulting in her being charged.
She had a related record and was on probation when the offences were committed.
Judge Jeff Lantz agreed with the joint recommendation of 90 days in jail, crediting Gill with 30 days — time and a half — served, reducing her sentence from 90 days to 60 days.
Once out of jail, Gill will be on probation for 18 months, during which time she must undergo assessment, counselling and treatment for her drug addiction and pay $200 in victim surcharges. Gill was also ordered not to have contact with her ex-boyfriend and is prohibited from owning or possessing weapons or ammunition for two years.
