Aug. 24, 2020

Kendell Sawan, 28, of Peace River, was sentenced to probation for 12 months after pleading guilty to uttering threats causing death.

He threatened his common-law wife in or near High Prairie on Dec. 5, 2019, says Sheen Kachroo, Crown prosecutor student-at-law for the Slave Lake Crown Office.

Sawan said several threatening comments to her.

“You better be hiding when I get home or I’ll kill you,” Kachroo says as she read the details in the disclosure.

“You won’t live to see tomorrow.”

Sawan also threatened to kill himself with a gun, Kachroo says.

The probation sentence also comes with a $100 surcharge.

Sawan was also fined $200 for fail to appear in court for a docket day.

He was remorseful for his actions and the couple is back in a good relationship, duty counsel Harry Jong says.

“He tells me he has apologized,” Jong says.

“They seem to be getting along now.

“He has agreed to do 12-month’s probation.”

Judge D.R. Shynkar did not order Sawan to take anger management or marriage counseling.

Although he suggested it would be an option for the Sawan or his probation officer.
