The Honorable Justice Gethin B. Edward
he was the justice on my motion that caused me to be able to access my laptop in the jail – the order never materialized, but the laptop was illegally accessed by Norm Barrio, at the jail, and Michel Booth at the Jail was witness – it is from my recall i refer to her stating such to the matter – the complication arose with the police service – and the jail accepting property – i ended up being released before the matter could be settled and plead guilty i believe ? i need to pull that paperwork – to concur – i will update if time allows, and i get to that paper - i believe he was baptized by the same minister as myself Rev. Tomkins –
On Friday, April 30, 2004, Chief Raymond T. Fitzpatrick retired from the Brantford Police Service after over 36 years of loyal and dedicated service to the citizens of Brantford. Chief Fitzpatrick passed the ceremonial sword over to Deputy Chief Derek V. McElveny who was sworn in as our new Chief of Police by Justice Gethin Edward. i have discussed both these chiefs of police in my blogs – one over a blind school problem, the other over the Anglican Church, Grace Anglican, and crack dealers to name a few things === Man sentenced to 8 1/2 months in jail – Brantford Expositor … Justice Gethin Edward rejected the Crown’s suggestion of a fine, saying that the job of a police officer is difficult enough without being spat upon by a drunk. He said people cannot go on thinking that being drunk provides a "free pass for bad conduct." Blair was also ordered to write a letter of apology to the officer. ( everyone is big on them their apology letters ? i got one from the rcmp, and the biker club house – can i get one from the jail to ? ) SPAT AT OFFICER: A 22-year-old man who spat on a police officer when severely intoxicated was sentenced to 10 days in jail and placed on probation for one year with an order to abstain from alcohol during that time. Derek J. Blair, of Brantford, pled guilty to assaulting police. Police found Blair passed out drunk at the side of the road in Eagle Place in the early morning of Oct. 11, 2010. His level of intoxication was of concern and officers called an ambulance. While being attended to by emergency personnel, Blair began swinging his arms and then spat in the face of the officer attempting to help him, court heard.
Michael A. Cardy, 25, was also prohibited from driving for another year after pleading guilty to disqualified driving. The vehicle Cardy was driving on Aug. 8, 2010, was stopped by police and Cardy was found to be a disqualified driver due to a prior drinking and driving conviction. Court heard that Cardy had been at a party and chose to take the wheel because the four other occupants of the vehicle were drunk. Justice Gethin Edward said that driving is a privilege, not a right, and added that that anyone who appears before him on a charge of driving while prohibited can expect to go to jail.
