CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - A P.E.I. man who hit his victim with his hand and a sneaker was sentenced Monday to 45 days in jail. 

Mason Wayne Steven Gibbs, 21, appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to the assault.

The court heard Gibbs threw the sneaker at the victim.

Defence lawyer Matthew Walters told the court Gibbs was so intoxicated at the time he didn’t remember what happened.

Alcohol is a recurring problem for Gibbs, Walters said.

“I would submit Mr. Gibbs needs help.”

Along with the jail time, which Gibbs will serve on weekends, he will be on probation for 18 months.

He must write an apology letter to the victim and undergo treatment or counselling if directed.

Gibbs must also pay a $100 victim surcharge.
