Man to spend summer in jail

Thefts from Terrace, B.C. stores lead to jail sentence

AFTER pleading guilty to several charges spanning more than one year, a man has received a sentence that would keep him in jail through the summer.

Patrick Benedict Bright, 36, was sentenced to 120 days in jail before time was credited for time spent in jail awaiting sentencing on four charges of theft under $5,000. Time credited eliminated 13 days, leaving 107 days.

Bright was also sentenced to 30 days in jail for four charges of breach of undertaking to be consecutive to the other sentence, for a total jail time of 137 days.

The eight charges were from separate incidents occurring from Nov. 5, 2011 until March 14 of this year.

That will be followed by 12 months on probation with conditions that include not being within 30 metres of Walmart, Save on Foods and Safeway.

He must also supply a DNA sample to police.

Three breach charges of failing to comply with conditions on an undertaking were stayed by the court.
