A 42-year-old Charlottetown area man was sentenced Tuesday in provincial court to serve four months in the provincial correctional centre for driving while suspended.

The sentence was imposed in the case of Cory Dean Wilt.

Wilt was observed operating a motor vehicle by a police officer who knew he was a suspended driver.

Wilt has a lengthy criminal record.

He also has a lengthy provincial record with at least 10 prior convictions under the Highway Traffic Act. Wilt owes the province more than $15,000 for unpaid fines.

Provincial Court Judge Nancy Orr observed that Wilt’s involvement in criminal activity has continued almost uninterrupted since the 1990s.

She prohibited him from driving for three years.

Wilt must pay a $200 victims of crime surcharge.
