PICTOU – A 21-year-old Pictou man had an additional five months tacked on to a jail sentence he was already serving. 

Donald Roy Cyr is currently serving 423 days in jail for violating a conditional sentence order from July 2013, but he received an additional five months after pleading guilty in Pictou provincial court Monday to drug and weapon charges.

Cyr pleaded guilty to a charge of possessing six marijuana plants, possession of small quantity of cocaine and possession of a prohibited weapon as well as possession of a firearm knowing its possession is unauthorized. The drugs and weapons were seized during a search of a Kempt Street residence in early February.

The Crown acknowledged that Cyr entered early guilty pleas to the charges. It suggested a sentence of four to six months followed by probation.

“I just want to apologize for breaching the conditions of my conditional sentence order,” Cyr told the court.  

Judge Del Atwood sentenced Cyr to an additional five months on his current sentence and $600 in victim surcharge fines. He must also serve six months’ probation when he is released from jail.
