Trio sentenced on reduced charges
A Hamilton man who along with two other men forced their way into a Simcoe home was sentenced in Ontario Court last month.
Aladin Elfatih Abdelgadir, 22, was part of a trio that went into the Queen Street South home at about 10:30 p.m. on Aug. 14 last year.
Police were called and one man was quickly taken into custody while two others ran away but were picked up without incident.
The men were charged with break and enter, robbery with a weapon, possession of an imitation weapon for dangerous purposes, possession of cocaine and methamphetamine for trafficking, assault, possession of stolen property over $5,000.
Before Justice Kevin Sherwood, Abdelgadir pleaded guilty to possessing an illegal drug and a Sept. 14 charge of failing to comply with his bail conditions.
He was sentenced to 30 days of time served and given another 12 days to serve. He'll remain on probation for a year and must pay $200 in victim surcharges.
His cohorts were sentenced in November.
Coby Carter of Hamilton was given 75 days of time served for possession of property obtained by crime and failing to comply with probation.
Simeon Bolton, also of Hamilton, pleaded guilty to possession for the purpose of trafficking and was credited with already having served 90 days in jail.
