The clash at the Beaumont Trailer Park in Aweres took place on June 7, 2020.

Jesse Roach’s sister was in verbal conflict with park residents. Roach, du Sault, and Nicholas Yakich, a resident of the Goulais River, who is dating the woman, were approached by her saying that a road could be blocked by residents of the park, Yakich’s lawyer said, Eric McCooeye.

The situation “deteriorated” when the two men assaulted the victims, he told Ontario Court Judge Melanie Dunn in an online hearing Thursday. The injuries were not serious.

Defense attorney Ken Walker, representing Roach, said the situation was “eight to three” with his client trying to get home after babysitting.

A six-month joint submission was suggested by Walker and Deputy Crown Attorney Matthew Caputo for Roach.

There would be three months of house arrest, followed by a 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. curfew for another three months.

McCooeye disagreed with the suspended sentence, saying the sentence “should only be imposed when jail is absolutely necessary.”

There was agreement that the two men should face the same punishment.

Yakich, 28, has no history and has “extremely remorseful” about what happened, McCooeye told Dunn. The assault occurred after his partner “came to him in distress.” McCooeye called the incident a “relatively brief altercation” resulting in “relatively minor injuries”.

Roach and Yakich, pleading guilty to assault with a weapon, saved a trial that would have heard “different perceptions from a lot of people,” he added.

Dunn agreed with McCooeye’s suggestion that Roach and Yakich get suspended sentences. They must each donate $ 100 to a registered Canadian charity. Dunn encouraged them to support Christmas Cheer. They will be on probation for 24 months. Conditions include avoidance of Beaumont Trailer Park and eight people associated with the assault. Roach and Yakich need to get anger management advice, Dunn said. DNA samples are needed. The couple cannot own weapons for two years.

I’m sorry for the way things turned out that day, ”Roach said.

Yakish refused to go to court.
