G20: Two comrades sentenced to six months in prison at Montreal courthouse

6 weeks late, but here’s a G20 update from from Sabotage Media:

Montreal, October 4, 2013 – Today at the Montreal courthouse, Guillaume Constantineau and Yuri Couture, two comrades from St. Jerome (near Montreal) pleaded guilty to three charges relating to their participation in the historical mobilizations against the G20 summit in Toronto, the 25, 26 and 27 June 2010. Both will serve six months of imprisonment, starting today, in a provincial jail in the Montreal area (Bordeaux).

Under an agreement reached at the end of plea negotiations between defendants and prosecutors in Toronto, the case of the two accused was transferred to Quebec, sentenced today in Montreal by judge Marc David, and will be served in Quebec. It is also agreed that no period of probation will be imposed following the imprisonment.

In addition, in exchange for a guilty plea on three counts (assault with a weapon on a police officer, possession of a weapon and mischief over $5000 ), the Crown agreed to drop all other charges filed against Yuri and Guillaume (four counts each).
