Life at Georgian Court a gas for one parolee
A Kamloops parolee who beat up two other residents of a half-way house after someone farted in his face will spend the next six months in jail.
Gary Trainor pleaded guilty on Wednesday, June 13, in Kamloops provincial court to two counts of assault, each dating back to February.
The 53-year-old, who has been designated a long-term offender, had been living at Georgian Court, in the 400-block of Fortune Drive in North Kamloops, since last spring.
Court heard that, in February, parolees at the facility had gathered in the kitchen to make homemade pizza.
Tensions escalated between Trainor and other residents, dating back to earlier “rudeness” perpetrated against him.
Defence lawyer Frank Caputo said Trainor’s hostility dated back to an incident in the Georgian Court smoking area.
“Someone passed gas in his face,” he said.
Trainor was handed a six-month jail sentence.
