Northwest Territories Court of Appeal

McGillivray, C.J., Stevenson and De Weerdt, JJ.A.

October 26, 1984.

Summary:

The accused was convicted on two charges of rape and sentenced to terms of one year imprisonment and two years' imprisonment less one day, to be served consecutively. The trial judge also imposed a probation order. The accused appealed against sentence, submitting that the trial judge had no authority to impose probation under s. 663(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada.

The Northwest Territories Court of Appeal allowed the appeal and vacated the probation order.

Criminal Law - Topic 5726

Punishments (sentence) - Probation - Circumstances when permissible - The accused was sentenced to consecutive terms of one year imprisonment and two years' imprisonment less one day after being convicted on two counts of rape - The accused was also placed on probation under s. 663(1) of the Criminal Code of Canada - The Northwest Territories Court of Appeal vacated the probation order, because under s. 663(1) the accused could only be placed on probation if the total of all his sentences was less than two years.
