A P.E.I. man who breached a recognizance by having contact with a woman in violation of a court order was sentenced recently to 15 days in jail.
Jason Robert Morri Raffoul, 44, appeared before Chief Judge Nancy Orr in provincial court in Charlottetown where he pleaded guilty to breaching a recognizance.
Crown attorney Gerald Quinn told the court Raffoul breached the recognizance by having contact with a woman he was supposed to stay away from whenever he had alcohol in his system.
Orr told Raffoul a recognizance is a way of avoiding a criminal conviction that he obviously wasn’t able to take advantage of.
Along with the jail time, Raffoul will be on probation for one year.
