A Quinte West man who pleaded guilty in connection with a five hour standoff with police has been sentenced.
In June 2016, Quinte West OPP responded to an address on Belvedere Road in Trenton where a 29-year-old man had barricaded himself inside his residence and made threats to destroy it. He was arrested during the early morning hours the following day.
In August, he pleaded guilty to uttering threats and production of marijuana.
On Wednesday, Justice Stephen Hunter handed him a six month conditional sentence with 18 months probation.
He is to serve one day in jail and was given credit for 30 days pre-sentence custody.
He also has a 10-year weapons prohibition, must submit to a DNA order and undergo counseling.
