A Port Clements man has been sentenced on one charge laid in connection with the vandalism at the Tlell fire hall and post office last June. Kurt A. Busshoff plead guilty to mischief in Masset court on April 15, and was given a conditional discharge with probation in court last week. Some terms of that probation include keeping the peace, reporting to a probation officer, paying $2,800 restitution to the Tlell Volunteer Firemen and $1,000 to Canada Post in Tlell. Mr. Bushoff must also respect a 11 pm to 5 am curfew until January and write an apology to the community. Three other charges were stayed, including break and enter, theft and theft of mail. The charges were laid after the Tlell post office and firehall were ransacked over the weekend of June 2 and 3, 2007, with doors and windows broken, firefighting equipment destroyed and mail torn and ripped and some parcels damaged. In other court news , Jonathan T. Racette was sentenced last week on charges of possession of a weapon for a dangerous purpose, careless use of a firearm, and unauthorized possession of a firearm. He received 9 months in jail and prohibited from possessing a firearm for 120 years. He plead guilty to the charges on April 16.
