Conclusion to Ryan Rainville’s Sentencing

Skeleton Speaks to an AudienceOn Monday Dec. 5Th, 2011 Ryan Rainville was received to a conditional sentence of 4 months under house arrest, followed by 4 months curfew and then one year probation. Ryan had pled guilty to 3 counts of Mischief over $5000 for using a red and black flag and a hammer to destroy Toronto Police cruisers during the G20 riot last year. He also pled guilty to a Breach of Peace.

Ryan’s sentence took into account the 96 days he spent in the Toronto Metro West Detention Centre and Maplehurst Correctional Facility following his initial arrest on these charges. Ryan fought and won during a trial where he contested charges of Assault Police with a Weapon and Obstruct Officer. These charges stemmed from accusations that a police cruiser Ryan had damaged was occupied.

Guelph Anarchist Black Cross (GAYBC) has just released a zine of Ryan’s statement he read to the courts before his sentencing. You can find it on our website www.guelphabc.noblogs.org to print and distribute at your leisure.
