Travis Smyth is going to federal prison after pleading guilty to four separate assault charges.
Smyth's trial was supposed to begin Monday in Estevan and last all week. However, the Estevan Courthouse confirmed Wednesday that the trial never began because Smyth pled guilty to these charges on Monday:
- Aggravated assault
- Assault by choking, suffocating, and strangling
- Assault causing bodily harm
- Uttering threats to cause harm
The court said three other charges were stayed by the Crown.
Smyth has been sentenced to 1,510 days (just over four years) in federal prison in Prince Albert with no probation.
Smyth was also issued a lifetime firearm prohibition.
