A Quinte West man facing charges following a drug bust in Quinte West last spring has been sentenced to two years in a federal prison.
Shane Dubeau was sentenced today (Friday) in front of Justice Stephen Hunter at the Quinte Courthouse.
Dubeau, who was 27 at the time of his arrest, was charged with two counts of possession of cocaine for the purposes of trafficking, possession of crystal methamphetamine for the purposes of trafficking, possession of anything for use in the production of crystal methamphetamine, possession of cannabis resin (hashish) for the purposes of trafficking, three counts of unauthorized possession of a weapon and possession of property obtained by crime.
Defence Attorney Lennox Picart says his client does take responsibility for his actions and was quite forthcoming and admitted to his part at a very early stage.
Justice Hunter sentenced Dubeau to two years in prison, along with a 12 month probation, a lifetime weapons ban, a ban on possessing any drugs without a doctor’s prescription and he has to submit his DNA.
Dubeau was one of 16 charged in the bust that seized approximately $30,000.
