PENTICTON — A man with a lengthy criminal record will face several more years in jail for even more crimes committed across two provinces.
Kid Ashley Tye Broadhead, born in 1980, was sentenced in Penticton Provincial Court this afternoon for a long list of charges, including theft, possession of a weapon and fraud.
He will spend another three and a half years at the Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre, where he has been in custody for approximately 8 months.
Reading a list of offences, Judge Gregory Koturbash said Broadhead was arrested in Calgary in November, 2012 for breaking and entering a car dealership and attempting to steal a truck.
Broadhead was again arrested in August, 2013 for possession of drugs for trafficking and stolen items. His punishment for that offence is included in the overall sentence time.
Broadhead has a criminal record of over twenty different cases, dating back almost twenty years.
“I’ll do my best,” he told Koturbash, who told Broadhead the best thing to do was figure out a way to clean up his act while he’s in jail.
