A former international student at Holland College in Summerside has been sentenced to 16 days in jail after pleading guilty to assault with a weapon.
19 year-old Stephon C. Rodgers from the Bahamas was in court yesterday for sentencing on the charge that followed a November 23rd incident at a local motel where he was living.
Rogers had confronted another man living there about items that were missing from his room.
During an altercation, a knife in Rodgers’ pocket fell to the floor and when he retrieved it, the victim grabbed for the knife and his fingers were cut.
The accused was given credit for 9 days served and was also ordered to pay a victim surcharge of $100.
