A North Kentville man will spend time in custody for violating his conditional sentence. Trevor Junior Reid, a.k.a. Trevor St. Elmo Reid, was in custody and present in Kentville provincial court on Aug. 20 for a breach hearing. Reid acknowledged the breach and Judge Claudine MacDonald terminated his conditional sentence. He has been ordered to spend the remaining time, 42 days, in custody.

Reid was sentenced in Dartmouth on July 2 to a 90-day conditional sentence order with daily curfew for the entire time. He had pleaded guilty on April 10 to a charge of willfully obstructing a peace officer engaged in the execution of his duty. Reid committed the offence in Dartmouth on June 19, 2013.

He violated his conditional sentence by failing abide by daily curfew and failing to keep the peace and be of good behaviour on Aug. 15. Reid was arrested for allegedly breaking and entering a house in North Kentville with intent to commit an indictable offence.

Although he will spend 42 days in custody, Reid consented to being remanded on the break and enter with intent charge until Sept. 29, when a show cause hearing will be held and Reid is expected to make election and plea.
