The former leader of the Canadian Nationalist Party will have to wait until August to find out his fate stemming from a guilty verdict in Regina.
Travis Patron, 31, was found guilty of two counts of assault causing bodily harm by a jury last month. He had assaulted two teachers in Regina. One suffered a concussion, and the other a broken wrist.
The Crown asked for an 18-month sentence, with a mandatory DNA order and a 10-year firearm prohibition. Patron, who is representing himself, did not present a sentence recommendation to the judge.
Patron was arrested in March of last year after an incident in Redvers and has been in custody ever since. Factoring in time spent on remand, if Justice Beverly Klatt imposes the recommended 18-month sentence, Patron would not have to spend any further time behind bars.
Patron will remain in custody until the decision on sentencing is made, which is expected to be on August 23rd in Regina.
Patron is scheduled for another trial in Estevan on September 26th. He was charged with willfully promoting hate to an identifiable group in relation to an anti-semitic video posted on YouTube in June of 2019.
Police are also investigating four similar videos and hate speech alleged to have been made by Patron between April and July of 2020.
