Man sentenced for assaulting P.E.I. siblings over maple syrup dispute

Henry Joseph Doucette, 60, of Christopher Cross, was sentenced for his part in an altercation with his siblings.

The fight was triggered when the three argued about who owned the maple trees Doucette was tapping for syrup.

Doucette was found guilty on two counts of assault in October.

He was recently given an intermittent sentence of 30 days in provincial jail, 18 months of probation and must pay $200 in victim surcharges.
