Man forfeits $2,500 in bail

Terrace, BC man had put up the money as a guarantee he'd appear in court

A man who failed to show up for court twice was ordered to forfeit the money he put up as a guarantee that he would appear.

Henry Haydon will forfeit $2,500 he put up for bail but will get back a separate $1,500 he put up, also for bail, as ordered by judge Terence Wright in provincial court here Jan. 9. In July last year and again in September, police picked up Haydon on a failure to appear in court. On Sept. 19 in court he pleaded guilty to two failing to appear charges, plus several other charges, and was sentenced.

At that time, Crown said it would apply to keep his bail deposit.

And a convicted thief will spend one year on probation for several charges from last year. Phillip Christopher Roy Wood was handed a suspended sentence with one year of probation with conditions on three counts of theft $5,000 or under and one count of break and enter with intent to commit offence here Jan. 28.

He must pay $580 in restitution to one of his victims and provide a DNA sample to police. One count of fraudulently obtaining transportation was stayed by the court.
