A Delhi man who continually flouted the law in the spring was sentenced to the equivalent of six months in jail.

Amos James Elliott, 26, pleaded guilty to assaulting an OPP officer on April 2. Other charges from that day of assault, taking a bank card and failing to keep his probation were withdrawn.

He pleaded guilty to contacting the woman he had taken the bank card from on April 19.

On April 26, he failed to comply with his probation order by not reporting to his probation officer: he pleaded guilty to that.

He pleaded guilty to not attending court on May 23 and failing to comply with his bail conditions on June 25.

Justice Kevin Sherwood credited Elliott with having served 160 days in jail and ordered that he serve a further 18 days of weekend jail.

He was also ordered to submit a sample of his DNA to the national offenders registry and not to own or use weapons for five years.

Elliott will have to pay $500 in victim surcharges.
