Incident from last year comes to trial, Conte pleads guilty

  • Jun. 6, 2012 6:00 p.m.

A 21-year-old local man was sentenced to 90 days in jail on May 24 for damaging and breaking into a neighbour’s home last year.

Last October, Alexander Conte pleaded guilty to breaking into the house and causing mischief on May 20, 2011.

According to other media, provincial court Judge Evan Blake did not order Conte to pay restitution for more than $5,000 of damage he caused on the home located on 6824 West Coast Road.

Blake stated Conte has no real prospect of paying the restitution as he is currently in the Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Port Coquitlam.

Sooke RCMP arrested Conte on the lawn, after Conte, then 19, became angry at the home owner and threw rocks and broke a window.

Conte reportedly returned to the house at 6 a.m. and caused more than $5,000 worth of damage, kicking in the door with an axe, smashing windows and damaging doors.
