A man accused of dangerous driving causing bodily harm, assault and assault with a weapon took advantage of his time in court on Tuesday to settle all his cases and he received an overall sentence of 18 months of detention.
In August 2019, Samuel Chouinard, 25, was riding a sports motorcycle with a passenger when his erratic driving was noticed by the police while they were on rue Soumande.
Wishing to intercept it, the patrollers activated the flashing lights, but Chouinard chose to flee by burning a red light in the process.
“After a short chase, while the passenger was waving the fingers of honor at the police, the driver lost control of his car. The passenger was ejected and he was thrown onto a concrete block, ”briefly summed up the prosecutor, Mr.e Jean-Philippe Robitaille.

Not caring about his passenger, Chouinard fled on foot only to be arrested a few moments later. “Despite the injuries he suffered, the passenger refused to cooperate with the police and he did not provide a statement,” added the prosecutor.
Two episodes of assault were also the subject of a guilty plea by the accused.
He admitted, among other things, that he physically attacked his mother’s neighbor who, according to the summary of the facts, had “inappropriate remarks” towards the lady.
He also admitted to hitting his mother’s partner with a drill because he “had been violent” towards his mother.
In addition to the prison sentence handed down against Chouinard, the latter will have to undergo a three-year probation period upon leaving detention, all with an 18-month follow-up.
Before Chouinard leaves the room to go into detention, defense counsel, Ms.e Adèle Juster, stressed in court that her client was celebrating his birthday on this day.
“Well, I wish you a happy birthday, even though you are detained, and I hope you will continue with your therapeutic treatment. Not only are you going to give yourself a gift, but you are also going to give one to your mother, ”the judge concluded.
I hope you are in health and well.
