His Honour Justice Gary Kunnas is presiding. Crown Attorney Tamara Fairchild and Defence Lawyer Andrew Desmoulin are present.
MENDOWEGAN is a slightly larger than the average man with a mop-like head of hair wearing dark clothing.
MENDOWEGAN is being sentenced for assault with a weapon.
The court hears that on the evening of May 24, 2018 that MENDOWEGAN entered the Landmark Inn appearing under the influence of drugs and alcohol with blood on his hands. He was not a guest of the hotel. A security officer approached him in the lobby and MENDOWEGAN pulled a knife out and pointed it at the security officer.
The officer went to call police while MENDOWEGAN proceeded through the lobby and walked through the hotel with a knife. Thunder Bay Police arrived and found MENDOWEGAN and the knife inside the hotel. He was taken to hospital to be medically checked then to the police station.
MENDOWEGAN is a member of the Aroland 83 Indian Settlement and both his parents went to residential school.
MENDOWEGAN is ordered to submit his DNA as well as not to possess weapons along with his 12 months probation. He’s also ordered not to have contact with the security officer and stay away from the Landmark Inn.
There was no media release from the useless Director of Communications about this incident and local taxpayer subsidized media sat in the courtroom playing on their cell phones instead of taking notes.
