A judge sentenced a man to 50 days in jail for twice breaking an order to not have contact with a former partner he assaulted.
Aubrey Charles Doucette, 33, had contact on March 2 and April 18 with the woman he was twice convicted of assaulting.
Chief provincial court Judge Nancy Orr scoffed at a request from Doucette’s lawyer for probation only and no time in jail.
In fact, Orr voiced exasperation over Doucette’s failure to comply with the court order.
“Some days I just don’t understand what it takes,’’ she told Doucette. “When you have an order that says no contact, you have no contact. There is a reason those conditions are there — and it is your record.’’
Orr sentenced Doucette to 25 days for each of the two breaches to be served consecutively.
He was also ordered — yet again — to have no contact with his former partner.
