A Bracebridge man was sentenced to more than 200 days in jail after admitting to laundry list of offences, including stealing a car, a phone, and breaking multiple court orders.
Sheldon Burry, 22, recently pled guilty to 11 charges in a Bracebridge courtroom.
A full description of the offences was provided, including an incident on Feb. 16, 2022, wherein Bracebridge OPP were called to a resdinecne in Gravenhurst regarding a stolen vehicle.
Court heard that Burry was at the residence and when the vehicle owner awoke they found their car was missing. Police also spoke to another person at the same residence who reported their phone had been stolen. Both items were eventually traced back to Burry.
Burry also pled guilty to failing to show up for his probation appointments, failing to be in the designated location for a compliance check and driving while disqualified.
Crown Attorney Lyndsay Jeanes said the sentence must send a strongly worded message to the community with respect to deterrence.
Justice Robert Gattrell agreed.
“He keeps getting released and at some point the justice system has to wear it,” he said.
Burry was sentenced to time served, noted as 208 days, 12 months probation and a two year driving ban.
