Myles Hughes has received his sentence for his role in the fatal shooting of man at a Belleville house party in 2010.
The judgement came down today at the Hastings County Courthouse, where Justice Robert Scott gave Hughes a nine year sentence for manslaughter, aggravated assault, and weapons charges.
With time served, Hughes will receive a seven year sentence.
Justice Scott told the court “prison does not equate retribution for Mays death”, and “the necessary intent for murder was not there”.
He did add that illegal guns, especially with young men, can often lead to disaster.
On Saint Patrick’s Day 2010, Roy Mays Junior and his cousin Justin Coughlin were shot at a Victoria Street party.
Mays died later that night.
