Severight Sentenced For Assault On Officer

Tuesday, September 21, 2010 at 15:16

 

 

A woman convinced of assaulting a Saskatoon police officer has been sentenced to two years in prison.

 

Leanne Severight was shot by police on December 27th, 2007 when she threatened them with knives.

 

A Court of Queen's Bench justice today gave her 24 months in prison -- saying, while her life circumstances were tragic, she was not the victim in the incident and her actions needed to be denounced.

 

Crown Prosecutor Cory Bliss says it is clear that Severight has issues and a sad childhood that saw her in seven foster homes over a period of two years and was plagued by alcohol abuse and violence.

 

Severight's lawyer had been asking for a much shorter sentence with more of an emphasis on probation -- because he says if his client is medicated and managed, she can function as a productive member of society.

 

It's not known yet if he will appeal.

Vandals Desecrate Grave Of Dead Foster Child

Tuesday, September 21, 2010 at 15:00

 

 

There is more heartache for a Saskatchewan father already mourning the loss of his son.

 

Chris Martell says vandals damaged the grave of his son, Evander Daniels, at the Sturgeon Lake cemetery over the weekend.

 

The 22-month-old boy drowned in a foster home earlier this year.

 

Martell says he can't believe someone could do such a thing, and doesn't know why it was done.

 

According to Martell, a picture was damaged and the gravestone was toppled over.

 

He says the family has cleaned up the damage to the gravestone, but haven't contacted the RCMP.

 

However, he says family members will be checking the site frequently to make sure it doesn't happen again.
