PORT HARDY – Time served was deemed sufficient jail time for Trevor Bingham, who spent 72 days in jail for assault, uttering threats and possession of a firearm. Bingham was jailed Dec. 6, 2010 after he fought with his partner Janine Sheard, Crown Counsel Mike Wolf told Port Hardy Provincial Court Feb. 16. At one point Bingham came down the stairs of their residence with a rifle, uttering threats to both Sheard and her mother. The two women alerted a police officer on patrol in the area. Police went to the house. Bingham came out, but then ran back into the house and police pursued. Bingham, who police reported was intoxicated, was arrested and the gun found on the couch inside the house. Bingham is 34 years old and has two children with Sheard. He works in the shake block industry. Bingham has a history of domestic violence with a conviction for similar charges in 2006, said Wolf, who along with Bingham’s lawyer asked for time served and six months probation that would include alcohol counselling.”Mr. Bingham has taken the time out to heart,” Dan Nowosad said in Bingham’s defense. “He has quit smoking and drinking. He plans to not drink in the future; he realizes that is his problem.”The judge agreed to the joint recommendation. The probation includes a no-contact order with Janine Sheard except with her permission and when he is sober.
